  • Another piece of architecture of great value in the historical. No doubt it is beautiful in every detail. Since the value that was completed a few years ago to regained its façade and the interior light. Together with other churches and chapels in the city offer us a great heritage for those who live in the city and tourists.

  • It is a very nice Church, with many religious friezes, paintings, the Christmas tree and crib decorated with very good taste. You have hours: open from 9 to 12 hours. and from 16 to 19 hs. There is a person who guards the entrance and exit. We did not know the schedule of masses, since when we went there was no. but it is to admire the architecture and there are also the remains of Urquiza.
