Check out this church in the small town of Tlachochahuaya, on the way to Teotitlan del Valle. It has been beautifully restored inside and you can climb a spiral staircase to see the small bellows pipe organ.

This church was unique in terms of its construction, unfortunately, not kept clean and badly in need of upkeep. not too popular with the tourists, it was just that my local friend took me there.

This absolutely beautiful church has been lovingly and beautifully restored. The inside walls are covered with painted plants and animals of the area, with cherubs and angels as well. Don't miss the stunningly detailed pipe organ in the choir loft upstairs.
