The church is the first place on the Combination Ticket. You get entry to Belen, The Women's Hospital, The Ransom Room, The Ethnic Museum and the Archaeological Museum. To pay separately would have been disappointing but for s/5 to all the attractions it wasn't so...More

Pedestrians only, nice walking area as alternative to the fumes and noise of most streets. Some shops, historical areas, apparently a gathering place for young folks practicing native dances. Enjoyable walking area.

This is a fully restored religious compound. Clean and well guarded. It is a safe place to take a camera and take pictures where it is allowed to do so. Very pretty indeed!
