Old historic church, nice plaza with little tchatchki shops abound. They build a tunnel under it for traffic and there is great (and gawdy) statue of an angel slaying the devil in the middle of it all!

I used to come to this church when I was in High school and college. Every time I go to the downtown area I visit it.

The church is no different than other colonial churches. It's pretty, but not unique. The plaza, however, is a great place to hang out. You meet friends there or enjoy 'people watching'. Also, there's a shabby market right next to it. In it you can...More

Stopped in here at 12:30 on Sunday afternoon and were told they were just closing. Got a quick peek before they closed the door. Best to time your visit before or after mass to ensure you can go inside. Just a short walk from Parque...More

It's a nice church and open to the public but it could use some cleaning or sprucing up but overall its a nice church to visit while on the hot plaza in Centro Tegus.

Very pretty place, nostalgic, under repairs but worth it to go see it. Take a vetted taxi cab and have them wait for you since its not a place to wonder off.
