“Underwhelmed.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014 via mobile

If you have never seen an old church before, this is a good place to start. All subsequent ones will seem spectacular by comparison.

“An Accidental Gem...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

While looking for a specific restaurant, visiting Cozumel for the day..I accidentally found this perfect little church, and was drawn inside. Had to stop for a moment to take in the quaint beauty. So peaceful. Didn't take pictures, it just didn't seem right at the moment. But it was enough for me and my own memory. Historical..a must see.

“If you enjoy historical churches, is a nice place to stop. Pretty church with a serene feeling and some nice architecture.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2012 via mobile

We stumbled on this church while looking for a bite to eat and some wifi. I love Old churches and stopped in to see this one. The architecture is very nice and the feeling is so calm inside. There are some very nice statues and plaques to see and read, and it never hurts to put in a small donation and pray for a safe trip! Overall, a nice break, a nice place to quietly sit and enjoy the surroundings, and close to cafes and things. Taxis are also parked next to here, so we hopped in one to get back to port. Price was very reasonable.

“Pretty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

We were walking around the town and stumbled upon this church. I didn't go in as I thought it would be rude to take pictures. But it looked like it has a lot of history.

“Typical Mexican Town Church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

If yu're in historic downtown Cozumel, you have to walk into this church. The statue of St Michael the Archangel (patron saint of the island) is on display. Supposedly it was brought over by the Spanish in 1512±
