El Patricinio is an intriguing structure here in Oaxaca where so many historic buildings have been painstakingly restored with attention paid to every possible architectural and decorative detail. Here, just across from Parque Llano, is a gem awaiting a jeweler. Most days this church is closed, but we were out walking on December 12, Guadalupe Day, and were in luck. Not only were the exterior wall doors open, the church doors themselves were open and this is what we saw.


As you can see below on the left  in the photograph taken of El Patrocinio from a neighboring street, the structure dominates the neighborhood skyline.

All of El Patrocinio's iron work that we could see is in great need of care. We could not see the bell in the tower seen in the photo below on the extreme left, but if the bell pull pictured in the middle below is any indication, it probably needs attention too. When I saw the beautiful wooden doors pictured below on the right , I wanted to run and get my mix of turpentine and boiled linseed oil and a lot of soft cotton cloths. But in truth, we're sure El Patricinio is scheduled for the same extremely careful restoration as have been so many of Oaxaca's historic buildings.
