San Felipe
photos by Lois and Don Porter

San Felipe is a village just north of Antigua. It is about a 30 minute walk from our apartment. The 18th century Gothic church was severely damaged in the 1976 quake, and has been fastidiously restored. It houses the famous image "Buried Christ" (Jesus Sepultado), said to have miraculous powers. The image is featured in elaborate processions at Easter time.
