Thankfully, we had a guide to provide much needed info on the history of these churches in old town - there are 60!

Probably a must see for those who like to visit churches. There is a museum next door and a busy plaza out front.

The square is simple yet offers a lot to anyone sitting in the square. The buildings and sights are a must.

There is a beautiful courtyard with lots of plants (and hummingbirds!) and the inside of the church is stunning. The view from the balcony gives you a good vista and it has an original moor design ceiling. You can also take photos.

Church is free to enter, entrance fee only for the museum, two dollars I think.
