The La Profesa Pinacoteca
The splendid neoclassical church of San Felipe Neri (commonly called “La Profesa,” the present structure was completed in 1720), in Mexico’s bustling downtown, is a gem many visitors never see, with a balanced, harmonious main chapel in sober stone and high-gloss gilt. Even fewer visit the church’s picture gallery, called the Pinacoteca, home to one of the city’s most complete collections of colonial-era religious art, imposingly arrayed in a handful of high-ceilinged chambers that seem not to have changed a whit since viceregal days. No such thing as gilding the lily here.
