  • Regardless of their beliefs is a place where you can appreciate art, also there is a museum that we could not visit for the schedule that recently opened it at 14:00. It is very nice but it depends a lot of personal interests and the group with which one travels

  • An impressive building for its size and its architectural and artistic beauty. For Catholic people is quite good with varied mass schedules that allow you to attend without depriving yourself of tourist programs.

  • You see this from anywhere in Banos. I only went inside once and that was when an orchestra was playing some famous film songs like Mission Impossible etc. I don't know if that is common but it's pretty cool.
  • You can see this gorgeous cathedral from anywhere in Banos, its a very good reference point for meeting people.
  • A very iinteresting church at this awosome city of Baños, if you visit this beatiful city you should go to the church that is called "Virgen de Agua Santa"
