Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The church is old but beautiful, and any visit to the old town should stop by to check it out. The exterior is quite old while the interior is a bit somewhat new. There are also some amazing religious statues and sculptures that should be checked out as well.

Amazing that this still remains! The feeling you get from the old buildings are amazing and astonishing.

Nice looking church! The semana Santa procession starts here. So it gets super duper crowded with vendors, tourists, locals, tv crews during that week. Great food deals. We got tamales for Q5. And some fancy no-sting honey.
