This church has been partially rebuilt and left as such. The interior is well worth seeing, in particular the side chapels.

A very beautiful Spanish Colonial church, it used to be lighted at night, but doesn't appear to be so at this time. We went during Mass, and the ceremony was beautiful. When in Antigua stop at the church.

Another old church in Antiga worth to see. There is a local artisane market near the church, inside the walls. Worth to see beacause of nice front and colonial spanish climate inside.

Great historical place to visit. Markets outside of the church are worth the visit and purchase from. Great history and grounds regarding the originating pastor.
