I visited this church (two churches actually) twice, once attending their 7am mass. There is a museum of Santo Domingo but we were not able to attend that—which would have given more of the history and significance of the church and its role in the...More

If you are in San Cristobal make this one of your stops. So much gold decoration! A beautiful church. Behind is a museum in a beautifully restored monestry. Loved the Textile exhibition.

Definitely an interesting place to visit. Just one of the many churches and cathedrals in the city. Nothing extraordinary

Interesting church surrounded by open market. Great for people watching. Colors and bustle of activity are draws. In church sit quietly and be touched by the devout who come in - often with whole family in tow- to pray. Touching to say the least

It is a nice church, richly decorated on the inside. It is next to a huge market so after some shopping you can visit the church

There are alot of churches and cathederals in Mexico and this is another unspectacular one of them. It is not a particularly attractive building on the outside in part because of its location. Its great wooden doors are its greatest exterior asset. On the inside...More
