Modest and intimate, Iglesia de la Candelaria y San Antonio provides a good space for some quiet contemplation. The small building features a whitewashed adobe facade and a carved 17th-century altar inside. Originally constructed at the end of the 16th century, the church underwent reconstruction after an earthquake in 1873. Check the cathedral's schedule to find out when you can catch the daily mechanical performance of Saint Francis accompanied by traditional music. Round off your visit with a stroll through the vibrant and colorful square abutting the cathedral.
