Towering above residential houses are the bright blue onion domes of Russian Orthodox Church (Iglesia Apostolica Ortodoxa Rusa). The church was designed in St. Petersburg distinctly of the 17th-century Muscovite style and executed by architect Alejandro Christophersen in 1901. The church features five blue domes decorated with gold stars and topped with orthodox crosses. Rich decor fills the interior of the church, murals cover the walls, and the intentionally east-facing altar is adorned with red and gold details. Entry is only available at certain times, so be sure to confirm in advance. Women must wear a dress or skirt to the knees to enter, and photography is not allowed inside.
