If you are spending some time in San Cristobal del la casa then this is worth looking at if you have time to kill but not worth deliberately hunting out if your time is more limited. It's quite a nice area to sit and kill...More

Great landmark for the city and close to the central plaza. There is an "andador" walking street near by with many great restaurants and cafes.

Keep on going along the main shopping and restaurant street and it won't be missed. Quiet area with less tourists with comparison to to ghe main square.

I was lucky the church was open, because it is closed when there are no services. Mass had just finished and the priest was sprinkling holy water upon the pilgrims. The altar is covered with wood. It is very lovely. Didn't expect to find such...More
