Great history behind this church, set in the Old Town with great shops nearby. Wear good shoes as the cobblestone roads can be hard on the ankles.

My wife and I were on vacation in Puerto Vallarta on Ash Wednesday, and received directions to The Church of Our Lady of the Refuge where we received ashes...what a blessing to be welcomed into this incredibly beautiful church for the service.

This is a newer church than Our Lady of Guadalupe. It was started in the 60's. The style is Gothic and has an altar showing the altar as a refuge for the Virgin Mary.

Interesting old town location. There are old time houses. Noisy coble stone streets, wear flat good shoes or you might twist ur annkle. Very compact and rustic.

Known for its gothic influence, my favorite part of this church is the use of stained glass and golden accents. If you ever ride a bus south to centro in this town, you will undoubtedly pass by this church where you will see a handful...More

It's about 2.5 miles. It is just north of the main downtown area near the north end of the Malecon. Realize that this is not the main downtown church, which is Our Lady of Guadalupe.
