Architecture Classics: La Purísima Church in Monterrey / Enrique de la Mora y Palomar

La Purísima Church is a catholic temple located in the center of the city of Monterrey, Mexico , designed by the Mexican architect Enrique de la Mora Palomar , who won the National Architecture Award in 1946 thanks to this emblematic work.
