Attended mass here whilst on holiday. Not a Spanish speaker so the homily went over my head but the whole experience was worth attending. Singing was beautiful and I was made to feel welcome.

Lovely little church with a nice courtyard in front where you can sit and watch the world go by leads into the old town and toward the lagoon.

This is the main church on the island and is well worth a visit. It has a beautiful wooden ceiling and a peaceful atmosphere. There is a side chapel not to be missed with some religious statues decorated in typical spanish style.

A simple exterior hides opulence within. Beautiful stained glass Windows and small side chapels. A calm and lovely church with lots to look at.

This is a small, but beautiful church in the old part of the city. It's not spectacular or overpowering, but charmingly peaceful. Recommend a visit if in the area.
