  • The most curious of this church is that every day at noon, the image of San Francisco solano comes out to bless people, tradition that is respected to letter!

  • Church of Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria Cathedral opposite the Cabildo and. It was built in 1631 and completed in the year 1634. Since its construction it underwent several modifications being the most important the end of 19th century, where is the current rather neoclassical facade. Inside, stands the liturgical adornment: an altarpiece with vegetal and geometric motifs, and the altar, made in masonry and wooden, rococo style. We highlight the paintings of the 12 prophets, within its artistic heritage. Don't forget to visit it.

  • The twelve in the morning it starts a very emotional ceremony at the Church. The Holy leaves to bless those who stand on the square and is very nice. I'm Evangelical and I'm not sharing this but I felt that people touched it a lot with this Act. I like to respect every creed. And in the end, this was an act of emotion. Do not miss it.
