  • Seek out a place for respite in this busy downtown area. The church is very well maintained. It also a peaceful place to sit and reflect for awhile.  more »
  • The area around the altar is typically Spanish Baroque in style with fine work in gilded wood. It is remarkably simple without a lot of clutter which is otherwise not uncommon in this style of church.  more »
