If you are on an organised tour of South America, then you certainly visit your fair share of churches and cathedrals. The SAN Francisco Church was literally next door to our hotel, so it would have been rude not to call in. I can’t honestly say that there was anything that made it stand out from the all the churches, but it was really quite nice and worthy of look around.

Visited here during Tour of Scenic South America ( Chile, Argentina, Brazil) beautiful church in a nice area that had a very cosmopolitan feel to it with Victorian era style street lights and cobbled streets, there was a nice fountain outside the entrance to the church.

Beautiful place and well worth a stop. The interior is well maintained and a great place just to sit and think.

This was on our GPSmycity app and we popped in and were delighted with the design and feel while inside this amazing structure. It is similar to the amazing churches we've seen in Europe.

What an oasis of green and calm. The central courtyard is beautiful and the birds in it are a surprise in the centre of the city.

But no information in English, how sad.
