This church is a jewel standing in the mist of salespersons, food, clerks, a real mess but you can still enjoy the colonial architecture. The church is lovelier on the outside but you can still see the beautiful pieces of religious art inside.

Nice but smaller than I expected. A lot more busy than the churches in Canada. Stumble upon a mass in midday. Also close to the gold museum and the national theater.
