The church was renovated in 2003 and still looks great - it’s clear the parish has a lot of pride in their church. It’s not ornately decorated, but is nicely done. Worth a few minutes to pop in for a look.

Located in the center of ATACO, in front of the park, makes this church a must during your visit at the town. You have the opportunity to be present in a traditional mass on weekends.

If you're in Ataco, go and visit this church. It's very old and nicely conserved inside. There are Masses daily and it has a small chapel inside.
