  • Spectacular basilica of Baroque Churrigueresque style, very well maintained. Incredible pieces of art virreynal takes care within it. It is frequented by devotees of the magpie father whose remains are located on the floor of the Church. A weekend or week-day night is recommended over to meet him.
