One of the seven hermitages built by Hernán Cortés during the time of the conquest. It is said that this sanctuary is the place where prostitutes and thieves come to pray to their saints.
“God does not see who is good and who is bad. We are all his children, that is why church thieves and prostitutes can enter the church,” says a parishioner of the chapel known to many as the temple of” Dimas, good thief “.
The legend also tells that thieves ask for favors to Jesus Christ – who is portrayed or, rather, sculpted with a rictus of gentleness and sweetness, in an attitude of serenity and humility bordering on self-denial – they must stop stealing activity in a span of 24 hours so that they release their sins and also free themselves from “justice”.
