The favorite place in each town is their Plaza (small open space in which the town’s festivities take place). Mocorito’s Plaza construction started in 1900 and it was inaugurated under the name of “Hidalgo” in September 16, 1902. 10 handcarts full of human bones were dug from there due to Spanish religious custom, which was that the burial should be on the churchyards or on the fields near the church.
At Mocorito “Magic Town”, there are old houses and buildings that own a historical significance.
At Mocorito “Magic Town”, there are old houses and buildings that own a historical significance.Among the most important is Mocorito’s Church, preceded by an adobe chapel built by Spanish people. This chapel had to be destroyed to start with the construction of a more stable church under the work of Indian people and it was finished until the 17th century.
Due to that, it possesses mix-style architecture: the center of the facade is built of quarry, and the rest of the front part, including the tower, is built of brick. Inside of the church, there are 14 pictures that date back to the 16th century, which represent the ViaCrucis, these have existed for over 400 years. The Town possesses other buildings that date back to the same period, which are the churches of Capirato and Comanito.
