Beautiful little church to see. There are quite a few churches in such a small area from one to the other. Can make a quick little tour just seeing them bouncing from one to the next.

Took some really good pics here. Church is a looker and worth a stop when you are in the area. The tough part is getting the pic with no one in front of the building at the same time you are.

Amazing that this still remains! The feeling you get from the old buildings are amazing and astonishing.

Nice looking church! The semana Santa procession starts here. So it gets super duper crowded with vendors, tourists, locals, tv crews during that week. Great food deals. We got tamales for Q5. And some fancy no-sting honey.

Worth a stop! You can visit this highlight and appreciate its beauty in a short amount of time. Great place to stop while walking through the old town.

Tiny area to sit in the smaller (newer annex)- more of a local feel to this church.. easy to find across from the back entrance to American Trade Hotel

The small church attracts my attention while I going by by chance! The combination between original and new painted buildings shines like a diamond in the old town.
