This is a special and lovely little church with good views of the original material. A very significant cultural icon representing a huge cultural shift. The setting is beautiful as well.

This is the site of the first catholic church built in the Americas, hence it deserves being a landmark. La Antigua itself was historic in that it was the place where Hernan Cortes had built the first military headquarters in Mexico.

This place is very old. The walls are built with bricks and coral blocks. Definitely one place to visit.

Another piece of the puzzle of the Cortez Conquest of Mexico. This small chapel is still standing and operational, with well preserved furniture and religious artifacts.
