This church, which is very close to the more famous of Santa María Tonantzintla, has a lot to offer to the savvy traveler. The decor is amazing, a la Mexican Baroque, all cover in gold-leaf. Each niche has something to offer; you can spend hours...More

Perhaps the prettiest church in Mexico. It took 100 years to complete and no wonder, the whole outside fascade of the church in decorated with blue Talavera tiles. Inside, the tiles are blue, white, yellow and green. Lots of statues to. Sort of medium indigenous...More
