Built in the late 1700's, open to public most churches are closed until Sunday. Religious alters are very depicted in old style. Worth a stop for prayer and a pic or two.

This is a beautiful 19th-century church located in the city's central plaza. See it at night for a stunning scene.

Another very beautiful church with some actually nice artworks. As are most in Mexico, it is well worth a visit.

Pretty chuch on the outside. The indoors are simple. Around the church you can see some excavations of old pavement and a small religious art museum. The facade is beatiful and there is a lively, charm plaza in front.

Impressive exterior, but the interior is very simple. I would have expected more for a capital city, but worth a visit, nonetheless.
