Conforme se transita hacia el oriente por la avenida No Reelección, se vislumbra cada vez más la Capilla de Carmen, edificación que se encuentra al pie del Cerro de la Campana y que por su antigüedad, hay toda una historia detrás de ella.

Su construcción data del año 1837, cuando el guaymense Pascual Íñigo mandó a realizar dicha capilla especialmente para su esposa en los terrenos de la casa que en aquel entonces habitaban; 5 años después, la edificación fue bendecida. “Otro dato interesante de la CC es que fue el primer templo que tuvo un salón de actos donde se presentaron obras de teatro, actuaciones de aficionados al canto, o a la declamación”, así lo relata el cronista de Hermosillo, Rafael Aguirre.
Uno de los párrocos de la Capilla de Carmen fue Esteban Sarmiento, quien como era tradición en aquellos tiempos, pidió que al morir fuera enterrado envuelto en un petate dentro de esta iglesia. Sin embargo, por motivos superiores a la tradición, su última voluntad fue cumplida a medias. “Porque el obispo falleció por la peste bubónica, y la gente quería que se respetara la disposición de que se enterrara en la capilla del Carmen, pero había el peligro de que fueran a existir contagios. Y la otra solución era que se enterraba en el Jardín Juárez, lo que no aceptaban los hermosillenses y se solucionó el problema que enterraron al obispo en la capilla, pero en la noche exhumaron el cuerpo y fueron y lo enterraron en el Jardín Juárez”, puntualizó el cronista, pues fue a finales del siglo antepasado cuando esta epidemia se encontraba fuera de control en Hermosillo, enterrando a los muertos de ello, en el Jardín Juárez.

Cabe señalar que la Capilla de Carmen es la primera iglesia en Hermosillo que entró a la modernidad, pues desde finales de los 50 contó con aires acondicionado, con lo cual, los fieles hermosillenses seguramente prefirieron esta iglesia, sobre todo durante los meses de verano, durante tres décadas, en la que se mantuvo como la única de tener este adelanto tecnológico.

Existe el dato curioso de Javier Fimbres Durazo, quien como todo los Durazos es originario de Granados, dio su toque bastante peculiar para llamar a los files a misa. “Tenía la característica que para tocar las campanas prácticamente se montaba en las campanas y las tocaba, has de cuenta del Jorobado de Nuestra Señora de París”, tal y como lo recuerda Rafael Aguirre.

Independientemente de la religión que profese, es interesante visitar esta iglesia, sobre todo el 16 de julio, cuando tradicionalmente se celebra el día de la Virgen del Carmen, quien además es la santa patrona de los bomberos quienes no pueden faltar a este festejo.
