Owner description: This beautiful church contains artwork that was moved from La Merced in Antigua after that building was destroyed by earthquakes.
Reviewed May 16, 2011

La Merced holds most of the treasures that were taken from the original Merced church in Antigua after the earthquakes in the 18th century. The neoclassic style building is almost too small to house all the paintings. Take special care of the shrine of Santo Judas directly to the right of the entrance. Many people go there and pray.
