One of the oldest church here at home and few remaining earthquake baroque architecture. The facade is magnificent and imposing. It stood the test of time. The best time to visit is on breaking dawn until early morning to avoid summer heat.

A sign of the times was a note inside that those who want confession can call a cell/mobile phone number: the 21st c comes to the Roman Catholic Church. Just the short walk up to the church signals a special place. These are rather small...More

This is the second time I visited this church and it never disappoints. When you see this church, you feel you've travelled in time during the Spanish Conquistadors. This is a UNESCO Heritage site - thankful that is it preserved.

You must visit this attraction if you are in the area. This is a UNESCO Heritage Site. There is plenty of parking on the side roads.

From the outside, the church was really huge. The quality of the church was really maintained. It was even nice at night.

A must-see sight, a must-visit Church. The pictures that you can see posted anywhere say it all - it definitely deserves to be labeled as UNESCO Heritage Site. Day or night - it's a sight to behold. Tip: Go inside and pray. It's a different...More

This is a world UNESCO sight. The buttresses are enormous and the church feels very solid. The entrance is very impressive, and the interior is well maintained. I think it is witness to withstanding all the earthquakes that occur in the region.
