Very nice colonial building. Well preserved and is in active used. I went for mass twice and it was very peaceful. Highly recommended.

This is a beautiful church from the outside - unfortunately was not open to visitors on all the occasions I went to look. It is a really nice colonial church - Trujillo has some really nice colonial buildings and is great just to walk around the historical center.

This church is undergoing major renovations. We could only stick our heads through the door to see a couple of large statues of Mary.

The place is niece and well presented. The church and the other buildings around are in good shape. The colonial architecture is what can be appreciated.

Thank BillPeru
