It's not clear to me whether you can access the inside of this building visa tour. The outside is pretty and if you're in the area is worth stopping to look

Sometimes hard to get into but went to a rosary so it was open. Part of a trilogy of churches built be different religious orders. Not as pretty as the cathedral but well worth a visit. Beautiful and different on the outside too.

This is a beautiful church from the outside - unfortunately was not open to visitors on all the occasions I went to look. It is a really nice colonial church - Trujillo has some really nice colonial buildings and is great just to walk around...More

This church is undergoing major renovations. We could only stick our heads through the door to see a couple of large statues of Mary.

The place is niece and well presented. The church and the other buildings around are in good shape. The colonial architecture is what can be appreciated.
