Restoration proposal for the Temple of Saint John the Baptist in Tochimilco, Puebla, México, damaged by the earthquake on September 19th, 2017. This proposal is based on the restoration article by the Mexican architect José Villagrán García, his arguments are based on the modification of the architectural values after a restoration project. This must take into account the respect for the authenticity of the original element but must also seek to adapt to the time and requirements of its current environment. Taking these points, a recovery of the space is proposed, consolidating the ruin and using modern materials to fill the gaps left by the earthquake. It is sought that this line of restoration be followed more and more in order to identify the historical stages in the life of the monuments.
