Beautiful structure, very untypical for Mexican architecture therefore it was quite interesting to see. Also, when opening the door you are going to receive a strong scent of roses that remains at the place at all times. A very original touch

I just love this very unique gothic style Church located downtown in Monterrey, with a circular interior and beautiful pillars and chandelier. Masses during weekdays at 8:00and 6:30 p.m. (except on Friday afternoon) . Saturday only at 7:00 a.m. Sunday's at 9:00, 11:00, 12:30 and 6:00 p.m. Very small parking lot.
