This church has a magical feel to it. Peaceful with wonderful decoration and floral displays. Nice to get out of the bustle for a few moments of quiet contemplation

The church has a peaceful and welcoming feel. The religious decor is beautiful as are the floral displays at the alter. If you are very lucky you will hear the organ being played.....a wonderful sound.

We had read about this church and it had been recommended to us at the Hotel, so we visited it twice in one day - once as tourists to look at this lovely seventeenth-century church with all its works of art and the second time to join in the Mass. The service was very holy and the congregation enthusiastically devout.

We were welcomed to 10 am Mass in English on Palm Sunday by a few helpful and friendly local residents and ex pats. There were Mass sheets available in English and plenty of information in English on the events scheduled for Santa Semana ( Holy Week). The processions were moving and spectacular with icons paraded around the town and worshippers... More

Where are all the multilingual leaflets? For a place with all year round tourism this was poor..get a public relations person on the case!

This is beautiful church set close to Plaza del Chalco. It contains a lot of statues as well as a great pulpit and altar. It seems to be open most days but avoid visiting when services are on. A good place to sit and rest.

This is one not to be missed. There is a wonderful sense of calm and coolness inside. The roof and windows are fantastic as is the alter and pulpit. While you're there don't miss out at a look in the really old hotel Monopole opposite
