This is where the last supper Cuy painting is as well as the black Christ. Definitely helps to have a guided tour. The side chapel is used for high end weddings; for most couples this church is too expensive for a wedding. Even more fun...More

No need to book in advance. You should be able to get in during the day unless there is a reason that the church is closed.
