San José was founded on June 11, 1797. Unfortunately, the simple but powerful church was destroyed in an earthquake in 1868. It would be over a century before San José (the church not the full complex) was restored between 1982-1985. The restored church is authentic and well-worth visiting. This is an active Roman Catholic Church that is part of St. Joseph’s Parish.
