This church has one of the most original facades in the city. Completely white with a very elaborated decor. A beautiful representation of the Baroque era.

This church was stunning at night. I returned a few days later to go inside and was impressed that it was not overly ornate. I enjoy quirky church statues and images and there were a couple that did not disappoint.

Mostly painted white above street level, night lighting highlights the architectural detailing of the exterior and is a beautiful view along 4 Norte. The Courtyard is a hub of activity day and night. A mere block from the Zoculo, it is well worth the stroll.

The interior of this 17th century church is not spectacular. But go at night for a beautiful view. The church exterior is lit in amber, and the bell towers are striking and romantic. Take a seat at the plaza in front and enjoy it or...More
