No es catedral

La mayoría de la personas piensan que se trata de una catedral, sin embargo ni toda su grandeza le alcanzo para ser iglesia. Se trata de una parroquia común como la que hay en tu colonia.

Se construyó sin dinero de la Iglesia

José de la Borda fue uno los mineros más prolíficos de la región. Su riqueza le permitió erigir esta parroquia monumental. El arzobispado dio su consentimiento pero los sacerdotes tuvieron que mantenerse al margen del diseño.

La primer misa la oficio el hijo de Borda

Resulta que el benefactor de la parroquia tenía una agenda oculta. Más allá de heredar un templo al pueblito guerrerense, su verdadera intención era que su hijo fuera su párroco. Manuel de la Borda pasará a la historia como el primer sacerdote que celebro el santo sacramento en su interior.

Se levantó en tiempo record

Bastaron solo 7 años desde que se puso la primera piedra hasta que se ofició la primera misa. Un tiempo muy corto para las dimensiones de Santa Prisca.

Fue el edificio más alto de México

Se inauguró en 1758, año en la que se corono como la edificación más alta del país con 94.58 metros. El titulo lo perdió en 1806.

Su órgano es único

Santa Prisca tiene un órgano monumental que es difícil de encontrar en alguna otra parte del mundo. Consta de 250 flautas con mil voces. Se construyó en Taxco con piezas provenientes de Europa.

No, sus retablos no son de plata.

Taxco es la capital de la plata en México, sin embargo ninguno de sus retablos esta bañado con ese mineral. Todos están bañados en hoja de oro que le da un toque muy especial.

¿Por qué está dedicada a Santa Prisca?

Cuenta la leyenda que en el año que inició su construcción una lluvia demencial azoto la región. Los albañiles se arrodillaron a rezar, para su sorpresa Santa Prisca apareció en las alturas y sostuvo los truenos en sus manos. Desde entonces se le adora como patrona del pueblo.

Existe un demonio escondido.
