“Beautiful stained glass windows”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

Although built during the Second World War, this church looks totally conventional from the outside. Inside it is unusual because its walls are a mixture of rough concrete (some reinforcement bars still visible) and irregular chunks of natural stone. The stained glass is decorative, with a number of windows featuring missionaries preaching to indigenous people. Alas, the only postcard available is of the church from the outside and there are none of the interior or of the windows.

“Interesting church”
Reviewed 16 November 2012

This church is not as old as many European churches, but has the same sort of feel and architecture.

I found the stained glass windows particularly interesting, as they depicted scenes from the Spanish colonial era, featuring Spanish colonists and the native inhabitants.

Well worth a look.

“Beautiful small cathedral”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

I remembered there being only 12 Stations of the Cross, but here there were 14. Maybe a difference in religions?
Beautiful cathedral just by the Lake. Worth seeing.
