Templo de Nuestra Señora del Refugio, Nueva Ciudad Guerrero

Templo de Nuestra Señora del Refugio, Calle Eisenhower, Nueva Ciudad Guerrero, 1959

From as late as 1959, when the parish church of Nuestra Señora del Refugio was built in the new town of Nueva Ciudad Guerrero, traces of the Purísima model are evident. In the border cities of Tamaulipas in the postwar period, new construction was decisively reoriented away from Texan and U.S. models of modernity to Mexican models of modernity.
