This is the second time I visited this church and it never disappoints. When you see this church, you feel you've travelled in time during the Spanish Conquistadors. This is a UNESCO Heritage site - thankful that is it preserved.

You must visit this attraction if you are in the area. This is a UNESCO Heritage Site. There is plenty of parking on the side roads.
