Nice church off the main square. Easy to get to. Some interesting stain glass windows on the inside. There are a few market vendors out the front. Tip: Be careful of the beggars / 'charity' collectors who hang out at the front of the church....More

The Church of St. Agustin is absolutely massive. You can't miss it as it sits dead center in the Plaza de Armas. Its a stunning church absolutely worth a visit. You do have to pay to get inside however. To us it was worth it.
