The Franciscan, Dominican and Augustinian Friars constructed the first Evangelistic constructions on the American continent along a commercial and cultural route drawn between the city of Mexico and South of the New Spain territory. Each one of these monasteries were built under a new architectural model (different from the European) where the rapprochement with the natives was the main objective: Outside atrial cross, open chapels with vast atriums that served as esplanades in the evangelization process. "The book presents the study of 12 monasteries built in the 16th century by the Franciscans, Augustinians and Dominicans mendicant friars and located in the lowlands or slopes of the volcanoes Iztaccihuatl and Popocatepetl, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Mexico, in the current States of Mexico and Puebla."
