Explore the craftsmanship and artistry that went into the creation of a Catholic church at Iglesia de San Francisco. The original church of this establishment was actually completed in 1581, but the structure collapsed in the 17th century due to snowfall. The edifice you see today is the second church, built in the 18th century, with part of its convent used as a museum. From outside, view the Mestizo-Baroque stonework. Take a tour of the inside to see areas not normally open to the public, such as the belfry and the painting collection in the museum. Even without a tour, step inside to view the art originating from locals and the Spanish colonizers.

  • Church with rich ornamentation in the central region of the city. The style of the Church draws attention and is worth a visit, even more that this attraction is free.
