    It is worth visiting this church in the historic area. Alias all large or small churches such as monuments and historic ruins. A city rich in history.

    Beautiful church at the time colonial weddings that are held here are very well. The spaces are spacious and ceilings have domes with designs similar to the European cathedrals. Lacks a bit of maintenance.

    It is a place to pray and celebrate mass in a dignified way. Its colonial architecture is full of beautiful items, and beauty. Dedicated to the Virgen de las Mercedes
