Its facade consists of an attractive portico flanked by two bell towers, the east of which houses a clock imported from London in the 1840s. Head inside to examine the work of another Frenchman, painter Felix Revol. Other highlights include an antique piano imported from France in the 1800s, as well as a wooden cross that dates back to the very foundations of the city in 1565.
