Saint Martin's Church (La Iglesia de San Martin), La Colonia Tovar

  • When visiting the Church of colonia tovar, was like entering another era, all in silence, with a very dim light, was I shrunk the heart to observe as much Majesty in the images of the patron saint of the town, that I had to let go with my inner voice that I said It raises a prayer in this place, because we are sure that you will get the message to the universe of God, creation. Very beautiful was the moment that still remember fondly
