This is a lovely place of prayer. We did not attend Mass here, but it is daily at 7.00p.m. The Plaza de San Francisco is a lovely oasis of peace.

Disculpe la tardanza en responderle pero he estado de viaje. La respuesta es no. Ahora bien, si se retransmiten misas a través de la emisora local de Radio Popular, de la cadena COPE.
