Church of the Sacred Heart

The Church of the Sacred Heart is located at Plaza San Pedro Nolasco. The Church of the Sacred Heart has something very original. This is the Rosario de Cristal (meaning the crystal rosary). During the religious feast of the city, there is a large procession along the main streets downtown, where they display scenes of religious buildings like the basilica, on wheeled carts. The parade floats are all made of crystal and stained glass, and are lighted from the inside and the people in the procession recite the rosary. This church contains the floats with the exhibits of crystal and stained glass and has a show. The loudspeaker in the church explains each float and the float lights up. So one goes from one float to the other and gets the whole story. The floats are about 10 feet long by 6 feet high.
