A must see!!! Make Sachí a destination point to visit this town and its beautiful church. Take the time to walk the grounds and go inside to enjoy the solitude and architectural design.

This was a miserable wet day - courtesy of Hurricane Otto - so we did not see in best light. However there is great architectural detailing, and a lovely interior
