  • Temple is without doubt the most beautiful of san Cristobal, but need a hand of Jack, workplaces should not be completely on top of the temple and that are only to his around, and the lighting I was told that you had before and was better (went at night to see it illuminated and non was already lit) no doubt with some arrangements can be changed much

  • It is a pity that the Government is leaving this wonderful Church to have moisture on rooftops, without repair and its foreign cuunas have painting in poor condition

  • The style of the temple and its magnificent interior, with great history, very detailed. Sale or flea markets which is established outside detract from the image, the temple is a symbol of San Cristobal, tianguis may already be elsewhere q cm tourist if ye are interested in craft and take a souvenir from the place. Removes credit to the place.
