  • Simply amazing. Love the purple color on the façade and all golden details on the inside. Nice to visit on a Sunday afternoon while all vendors and city life are happening.
  • Possibly the best maintained historical church south of Mexico City. Well worth a visit to see. Or, better yet to attend a Mass!
