“Beautiful Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

The Church of Santiago Apostol is located at the highest part of the town and the views from it are very good. According to history, this church was designed by the architect Hernan Ruiz el Joven and construction took place between 1547 and 1638. The style of the church is Renaissance and the ground plan follows the Latin Cross. The main altarpiece is gilded and calls attention for its beauty, being a Baroque design that was built in the 18th century by Pedro Roldan. On one side of the church there is a very large statue of the Crucified Christ with the figures of the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene beside it.

The priest was very friendly and opened all the lights for us to see the interior better.
