Really impressive compared to the cathedral. There is an admission to get in and a guided tour. I happened to get the last tour of the day but it was in Spanish. Location is just between Plaza Mayor and Cathedral. Unique experience.

There's a notice on the door asking tourists not to go in during services, but to come back later, after the service. In mid-May 2014, though, the church only seemed to be open when there was a service on. Otherwise the door was closed.
