Christmas Getaway 2016

Very old church just in front of the plaza. The location is excellent which is just on the center of the city. The problem is the parking space.

In greeting the new year, One must pay homage to the Lord and thank him for the year that was and for the succeeding years to come. This is a very important historical landmark since this was one of the few structures made in the 18th century and is still up and restored. Hearing mass for the Roman Catholics can... More
