  • For the photo and that's it! It is basically a church that has beautiful photos of the façade lighting at night. On the day, is an area that may have some difficulties of security, this guarded by beggars and sick that decrease the quality of the visit. A sample of ecclesiastical architecture, but nothing more. I would not recommend it as a tourist site in the city to less than that is interested in this type of structures.

  • Beautiful inside and out great. I recommend it and at night this well lit the Eucharist well presidias the Bishop very wanted to become all well organized when one goes to the Eucharist one is excited by the word of God choir robes and as the pastor Bishop and other priests preside over it and good ventilation and good light there are enough hacientos for one sitting and collaborate all the q aya are very generous as I said from the beginning. THE RECOMMEND.
