This church was built by Vasco de Quiroga in the 16th century and is a single barrel wooden church. It currently contains examples of biblical figures in native dress and is well worth a visit. Don't miss the exhibits at the Jesuit College attached.

We visited this church a couple of times during the day but at night is when the magic happens when all the lighting on the building give it a refined and and lovely feeling. Great for pictures and to strolll through with the family.

This is a large and austere complex of church and other building which occupies a few blocks. It is reasonably well preserved and very quiet.

This temple, church, is worth a visit. I enjoyed the colors and the detail of the altar and columns. Calming, peaceful.
