“Lovely old church”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Almost at the end of the Calzada, you will find the old wonderful church. The facade has not been made and it is what makes it very authinic.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Masses here are filled with the faithful. The young priest is a very articulate and persuasive preacher, exquisite in his liturgical style, attended to by a small platoon of altar servers, and accompanied by clouds of incense smoke. The church itself is on the small size but well-appointed and with a gorgeous image of the Virgin of Guadalupe over the altar. The parish had an active evangelization campaign going on the weekend that we visited. You have to love the bells calling the faithful to Mass, even when they start ringing at 5:30 (a.m. that is!) Sunday morning.

“One of the oldest churches in the Western hemisphere”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Doesn't take long to visit and it is still active. The picture I've attached shows a horse-drawn hearse for a funeral that was taking place as we visited.

“Spiritual”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

However you encounter this church, be it a tour or you just casually take the time to enter while on a walk. Do yourself the favor of walking in, sitting on a pew, and stilling yourself for a while. Empty your mind and really reflect on where you are, let it soak in. Get up and walk out, worth it

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

We stopped in the central square as part of a tour from Costa Rica. I loved the architecture of the church it was absolutely stunning. The market surrounding the square is worth vising as well. We enjoyed buying all sorts of local treats and wondering around getting pictures of this beautiful church.
