  • The Church is located on a beautiful square. It's not really touristy, but I was here long and then visit you everything. o

  • The Church is pretty and is in a big square with other interesting things ... Cute façade, with the dome that stands out. and stop here, since it was closed. Is not far and then a step deserves, partly because the piazza offers more reasons to get this far.

  • This temple has several peculiarities which attract attention. One of them is its base made completely with Inca carved stone at the beginning of the colony. Above it stood the ancient church which for a long time, said the eastern edge of the city in the area called "neighborhoods below, shows a Romanesque style that is completely covered with pink marble facade. The interior warns another feature that makes this church unique in the city: three main ships and two small, are distributed in the form of perfect Latin cross. The new temple, built in 1935, retains even this unique structure as a basis.
