Awesome local feel. Visit the catacombs at the local sagrada ... starts after siesta (5pm) SaleRosa was our top restaurant! Simply awesome. Ask for Cesar - speaks English from Cardiff more »
Stunning church building from 1900's this architectural master piece is worth the visit. Just the front door is considered one of the biggest bronze pices world wide. And the building is one of the most beautiful in the world.
A very rare and special example of Neogothic architecture in the middle of Mexico, where barroque, neoclassic and roman style temples are much more common. It's interiors are quite astounding and gorgeous, full of crossed type archs and exquisite stained glass art all over the place. The huge gothic rosette in the façade it's even comparable with Paris' own famous Notre Dame.
