Templo de Nuestra Señora del Regfugio, Nueva Ciudad Guerrero

Nueva Ciudad Guerrero
Year Built – 1959
Architects – Calle Eisenhower
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.
