On the outside this small church is very plain, but inside it contains the most magnificent altarpiece that fills the entire end wall. Your visit won’t take you long but I thought it was definitely worth seeing this church, and visiting the San Blas area...More

Lots of churches in South America seem to have too much gold, as if this sign of wealth shows that their religion is better than the Incan one - this is one of these churches. Does have a nicely carved pulpit.

The exterior is rather humble but the wood work and craftsmanship inside is magnificent. Something very unique.

I think this church is worth while seeing. I love the history of this church and the beauty within the church. If you have seen similar churches in Spain they have a larger scale beauty. It’s definitely worth the cost to enter and see this...More

We heard there was a cool alter or pulpit or something carved out of one solid piece of wood in there, so paid for entry in the church. We walked in, saw what we thought was the big carved wood structure, spun in a circle,...More

Great Altar, Church is part of a 4 entry mini city card. With ticket you can go up into bell tower and only pretend to ring bell, as the sign asks you to please not ring bell.

A simple church a few blocks down for the plaza . We did not go in but took a sneak peak but noticed a typical wooden carved pulpit.

They must have blown the budget after constructing the altar...solid gold. This is part of a museum pass you can use to see all the churches efficiently.
