  • visit the Church, beautiful building, but when you go forth into it n see right away the altar, has a part in it, like an annex built, where q seems to keep things, n I know well, so you gotta spend next p get out front and see the altar and where banks p attend mass. I thought it was kind of weird, is a square inside gives Church. I entered it when if I prayed a mass, or is 10 soles p in.
