  • Just another amazing place tucked away off the main road. Great to see how life used to be led. Quiet and peaceful with a few shops. Definitely worth a visit  more »
  • Beautiful! It's surrounding Plaza de Armas. I've got there by the end of a mass. I could feel the energy.  more »

  • The facade is intricately carved and the interior is filled with baroque details. Don't miss the small side chapel with its colorful wall paintings. It's definitely worth the small entrance fee.
  • Beautiful baroque church from the XVI century.
