  • Located opposite the Plaza San Martín, is really beautiful. We went at night to the mass and had a lot of people. We also visited it day. It is simple and with very good lighting. The cross of Saint Damian is to admire, made of Walnut wood, covered in fabric and painted in bright colors, no Crown of thorns, since it represents the risen Christ.
