Be sure to see the historic side to the left. We unfortunately for us, not for the family, came during a wedding, so we only had a quick glimpse from the side.

North of the plaza. Regular services. Pretty interior . Operate a tasteful dress code . Gets a lot of visitors because of the central location.

This is a beautiful and more large church, beautifully enhanced with its stained glass windows. It also serves as a place of reflection. We appreciated visiting this church.

Spent time at the Garden to reflect at each of the Stations of the Cross. Provocative sculptures and artwork statues made for long reflective and quiet moments of thought.

Open for visitors all day to come and go, people also taking pictures. Some sections roped off but you can still see area.
