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, which was built in the late 18th century, is the 4th to occupy this site, the first built in the late 16th century and the subsequent 2 churches being destroyed by earthquakes. Externally this church is just a large stone edifice with twin...More

Iglesia de Santo Domingo is a solid proof that the most beautiful structures can also be the simplest. Its architectural marvel lies in simple lines, dominated by two towers at the top, featuring the Bavarian Baroque style.

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.

We got our bearings a little off and came in here thinking it was the Metropolitan Cathedral. It was open on 3 sides and did not seem like a place of worship although it was clearly a church. If you are short on time then...More

It is one block back from the main square and not terribly interesting. The interior is plain and not attractive but if in the area take a look

This small church is located about a block away from the City Center. Due to its location, it is not as crowded as the Metropolitan Cathedral which is at the City Center. The center of this church is the statue of Mary. (See attached pictures)....More
