This Church is on the corner of Calle Santo Domingo and 21 de Mayo. The Church is majestic and very beautiful with its many chapels. There is crucified Christ that people go to venerate. On the main altar there is a statue of the Virgin...More

As you head out of Plaza de Armas towards the river on the left sits this church. It looks quite unimpressive from the front but once you enter you are faced with a large cavernous nave that is really quite plain - bare stone walls...More

The Iglesia de Santo Domingo, on the northern edge of Plaza de Armas, took some fifty years to complete, and was finished in the early 19th century. It is unique in the sense that it stands out from the other churches in the vicinity.

This church is not very well kept so it really isn't the most exciting one in the city. If you don't have anything better to do then perhaps give it a visit.

A quite place to escape from the streets, but it really has nothing in particular to warrant a special trip.

This is the 4th Dominican church build on the site in honor of St. Dominic (Earthquakes are tough). More tranquil than the cathedral around the corner. While not artistically notable you might just need some cool and quiet.
