Located in the heart of the city, this catholic church is the oldest colonial building in the country.
It also has a convent and a Colonial Museum.
Very Spanish style, it has been damaged by several earthquakes over the years, and always restored.
It is considered a National Monument, and it’s a “must visit” for all the tourists.
It history goes back to 1561.

really enjoyed going through this church and the art collection was incredible. they have a really large collection of paintings dating back to forever ago depicting st francis of assissi's humble life and values. added interest in the collection now that the new pope took his name. recommend.
