The church itself is fairly ordinary, but climbing the steps and seeing the view of the city from the top is well worth it.

A beautiful church with fascinating neon lights. The evening views over the city are well worth the climb too.

This is our sunny day walk destination. Always an interesting walk, and always great views. Step inside for some old-world religion. Always worth the effort.

Unlike many churches around San Cris, this one always seems to have the doors open - at least during normal daytime hours. And inside, the place is loaded with statues and icons. Getting to the church could be an adventure if you are not fit...More

We were disappointed when we got close to the church. It looks beautiful from afar, but uninteresting when you get there. Also make sure you check the opening times as we got there at 6pm and it was closed.

You have to walk along the Guadalupe St and climb lots of steps to get to this church. It is kind of simple on the outside but very nicely decorated inside
