Small 'n' pretty catholic church. Exterior and interior is quite interesting. Interior of the church is very beautiful, especially the altar and lights. Recommend to visit.

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.

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.
