On the tower, look for mini statues of the twelve apostles and the four patron saints of Sucre. Enter to see the white nave with gold lining, brightly lit as glass pierces stained glass windows.

  • Imposing church of Baroque style "kiddondon" that stands out in the central square of the city. Very nice and worked the entrance portal in pink stone that stands out on the white background of the whole Church.
