In the older part of the city. Very low key entrance and fairly ordinary front exterior. But, step through door and it is something to see.

The location is in the “Calle Almirante Bonifaz”.

After the expulsion of the Jesuits in the late eighteenth century, the church became a parish church. Since its creation in 1945, the church has been the seat of the Brotherhood of Coronación de Espinas y de Cristo Rey. We where not able to shoot more pictures of the inside, this because there was a service busy, so we did not entered more, this to be polite for the people following the service.…

The cathedral is definitely more than worth a visit ... it looks amazing ... the audio guided tour was excellent with just the right amount of information ... if you wanted more in depth information, you only had to press a different button on the audio guide. Splendor, beautiful architecture, artefacts ... sublime !…

The Church of San Lorenzo was closed when we went to visit it. There were no signs at all when the church would be open. We asked people who worked near the church and they did not know anything about the church being open.
