An ancient painting of the Virgin of Guadalupe appears at the Convent of San Agustin in Yuriria. Now designated a national monument, the construction of this spectacular and massive structure began November of 1550 — just 19 years after Juan Diego's vision of the Virgin — and was completed nine years later. This original photograph forms part of the Olden Mexico collection.
