Maybe not one of the most impressive churches you will see but it is well worth a visit if you are nearby.

The San Ignacio Church is worth seeing because it has a Neo-Gothic architecture that is quite interesting. Few tourists see it because it is in the Barrio Gros. However it is not far from the river or the beach, so it is easy to find.
