“One of the best churches and ruins in the city.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This church, ruins and grounds are probably the best ones to see in the city. The grounds and ruins have a very serene and calming feeling.

“It was nice...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

This was a nice place but shouldn't be #1 on trip advisor like it currently is. There are other places that are more notable. The courtyard was interesting with vendors, But just wasn't super impressed.

“Ruins for self-guided tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

A bit more information or a guided tour option would be great, but even still this site of ruins that date back to the 1500s was really cool.

I you enjoy photography, and old buildings, this is a must visit. I have been a few times to take pictures in different weather and light. The ruins are extensive and interesting.
