As beautiful as some small cathedrals in Europe. Make sure to not only go into the main church, but check out the side chapel where there is more gold ornate trim. We visited as the city was getting ready for 16 de septiembre celebrations so...More

Built in the late 1700's, open to public most churches are closed until Sunday. Religious alters are very depicted in old style. Worth a stop for prayer and a pic or two.

Pretty chuch on the outside. The indoors are simple. Around the church you can see some excavations of old pavement and a small religious art museum. The facade is beatiful and there is a lively, charm plaza in front.
