A "pleasant interior" :)
Jan 2020
Not much is there to see inside this church, but there's just somehow an "atmosphere of pleasantness" likely due to its good floor layout for kind of a spacious walk around it (although not a particularly big interior) and also yes in part due to some lovely shrines featuring colorful sculptures & such. But actually more than the church itself, I would say that the "better parts" of the visit here are to the plaza right outside (a "fairly spacious" one with also some interesting outdoor display of a pair of statues one of which a sword-wielding angel standing over that of an evil-doer or such) and also to the indoor market along one side of the plaza (a great place for just all varieties of souvenir of Honduras from "quite a number" of small shops inside). Located at like the "downtown core" of the city (an area with narrow streets some of which not for vehicles but just for pedestrians lined with shops on both sides), just within a 5-minute walk from this church by first heading out across the plaza to the intersecting street just a block away then to the left for a short walk is another "bigger plaza" which is Parque Central with the city's "main cathedral" Catedral de San Miguel on the far side of that plaza with also a number of trees providing shade right in front of the cathedral (with a beautiful facade of pillars & statues and a "golden beauty" of the main altar & some big shrines near the altar). And also just within a 5-minute walk from this church but in the "opposite direction" from going to the cathedral is the "long building" which is Palacio Nacional with a museum inside (one like a national museum which is kind of a combo one of "history & art" but with not very much of displays to see on its 2 levels).

Old historic church, nice plaza with little tchatchki shops abound. They build a tunnel under it for traffic and there is great (and gawdy) statue of an angel slaying the devil in the middle of it all!

I used to come to this church when I was in High school and college. Every time I go to the downtown area I visit it.

The church itself is a beautiful colonial church. However, the plaza in front is in a ran down area and a more seedy part of town. I actually had a young man walk up behind me, snatch my earrings out of my ears and take off running! This happened in broad daylight and about one block off the plaza. So if planning to visit be extremly careful and aware of your surroundings. I would not say I will not return but next time I will be extemly cautious!

The church of Santa María de los Dolores of the city of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, is one of the oldest in the country and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
This barroc style church was built between the years 1735-1815.
Inside you will be able yo appreciate paintings , sculpture of religious images and silver pieces. The altar is my favorite. It is beautiful!

Like any self-respecting church Iglesia Los Dolores was built a long time. From 1732 to 1815. Started and went the war of Austrian succesion, then Seven years`war, The war for independence in America, and the Church was being built. Began in 1789 the Great French revolution, were the Napoleonic wars and the world and Europe has changed beyond recognition and only then to the Vienna Congress in far away Vienna Honduras finally finished Iglesia Los Dolores. The name of the church is ambiguous. The Church was the Latin American Baroque with two bell towers nd the Dome. On the facade at the top are three circles: in the Central - sacred heart of Christ, in the right and left- nails, ladders, whips and spears, reminding us about circumstances of the death of son of God and his agony, given the profile the name of the Church. Besides facade contains figures representing the Passion of Christ, At the sight of the facade of Iglesia is over, because it was closed. However, the most romantic in this Church located on the square in front of it is insane amount of pigeons, reminiscent of San Marco in Venice.

The church is no different than other colonial churches. It's pretty, but not unique. The plaza, however, is a great place to hang out. You meet friends there or enjoy 'people watching'. Also, there's a shabby market right next to it. In it you can find anything from cheap clothing, to bootleg movies to outstanding (and dirt cheap) baleadas.
