  • Similar to the typical Russian Orthodox churches, with their colorful and Oriental forms. To see if you are going to the Park Lezama, is on its North side.

  • I'd like to be baptized in this Church (where possible). The problem is that I don't know at what point go. Greetings, Juan Manuel Beverina.
