We are very sad to report that a fire destroyed the church of Santiago Nurio on Sunday March 7, 2021.
Reports indicate that all the interior furnishings were burned including the exquisite painted underchoir and adjacent wooden baptistry, as well as the nave retablos.
The only good news is that the adjacent Guatapera chapel, also with a priceless painted ceiling, was spared the holocaust.
Nevertheless, a tragic loss for Mexico and us all. See our previous post on Nurio:
