The church exterior is spectacular. The inside reverbstes with color flowing from the stained glass windows. Over the weekend, the adjacent square is full of activities, and vendors. In the evening you can join a Danzon class, which is later followed by a dance.

You see many churches in Mexico but this is definitely 1 of the most impressive. If you get to historic centre you can't miss it. It's as impressive inside as well so make sure you go inside for a few minutes.
