  • One of the colonial architectural jewels of Mexico. Excellently preserved. It's nice to go to Chiapas:)

  • No reason not to stop in here as the Mercado is right outside it's doors. Interesting temple with unique characteristics.  more »
  • Outside this very beautiful, think they rebuilt it inside and did not do so with the same style. This very hidden through both handicrafts which does not appreciate "well it's worth it"
