This neo-gothic style temple dates back to the end of the 19th century. It was built during Angangueo’s peak as a mining community; the project was in charge of the architect Jose Rivero y Heras and was financed by the Sotomayor family, who owned several of the region’s mines. The site is devoted to the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception. The temple stands right next to Nacional Street (which is Angangueos main road) and in front of the San Simón Abad Parish. 

The temple’s atrium leads to an underground passage known as the San Simon Tunnel through which you can reach the Parker House. The main altar was elaborated with white marble brought from Italy and it features an image of the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception in the center. It also features several ornaments and sculptures brought from France, Norway and the United States.
