“Beautiful often missed chapel!”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Located beside the Cathedral, this church is often overlooked by the tours and guidebooks. Started in 1617, it is a 17th century chapel with beautiful altar pieces. It was one of my favorite in old town, and worth taking a few minutes to see.

iT IS A JEWEL, smaller than the other churches but yet, as precious as the other ones, the altars, the entrance door is just ravishing, the colonial decoration, the gold leaf altars, every corner is just as beautiful as the best cathedrals of the world.
