Chihuahua. San Nicolás de La Hoya

As an addendum to our previous post on Santa Ana de la Joya, we look briefly at its ruined companion church of San Nicolás. Now abandoned and virtually roofless save for few remnant roof beams, this adobe church is slowly crumbling back into the dirt from which it was fashioned.
It was once a building of some substance with massive nave walls enclosing a narrow nave. The cracked rectangular front incorporates a large bell tower.
