As you head out of Plaza de Armas towards the river on the left sits this church. It looks quite unimpressive from the front but once you enter you are faced with a large cavernous nave that is really quite plain - bare stone walls...More

The Iglesia de Santo Domingo, on the northern edge of Plaza de Armas, took some fifty years to complete, and was finished in the early 19th century. It is unique in the sense that it stands out from the other churches in the vicinity.

Iglesia de Santo Domingo is a solid proof that the most beautiful structures can also be the simplest. Its architectural marvel lies in simple lines, dominated by two towers at the top, featuring the Bavarian Baroque style.

This church is not very well kept so it really isn't the most exciting one in the city. If you don't have anything better to do then perhaps give it a visit.

We got our bearings a little off and came in here thinking it was the Metropolitan Cathedral. It was open on 3 sides and did not seem like a place of worship although it was clearly a church. If you are short on time then...More

It is one block back from the main square and not terribly interesting. The interior is plain and not attractive but if in the area take a look

This small church is located about a block away from the City Center. Due to its location, it is not as crowded as the Metropolitan Cathedral which is at the City Center. The center of this church is the statue of Mary. (See attached pictures)....More
