  • This Iglesia is located in down town and is one of the oldest in the city, a traditional ceremony mass is held every year on Xmas and New year´s at this place and is well remembered by all old and you...  more »
  • Wandering around the hotel I found the San Blas place. Nice and worth visiting the small park with the local handcrafts market within.  more »
  • We came by on a Sunday morning and just managed to arrive after mass let out. It’s a beautiful older church with colourful artwork. The park right across, of the same name, is lovely to visit.  more »

  • Great architecture
  • 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.

  • This church, several blocks from the central square, deserves to be visited. They laugh before a very nice Park.
