A ride report about Parras would be incomplete without showing/discussing the Santo Madero chapel. This chapel sits on an extinct volcanic plug. I had pedaled up to it in the morning before touring the rest of the town and the winery. The chapel is dedicated to The Holy Cross. The residents of Parras often make the walk as a good morning exercise.

Here I park the bicycle at the base of the steps that lead up to the chapel.

At the summit.

Viewing the city from the chapel, the two main churches of Parras may be viewed.

And those churches up close. Green trim.

Blue trim.
