There’s no way you will miss this gorgeous Temple in town; unfortunately due to the recent earthquake in September, 2017 it is was closed when I visited. This temple is located right in front of the best local streets. One of the positive things of...More

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

I took photos of the outside and the surrounding area. There was quite a bit of construction going on and a lot of mess.

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.

Well worth a short visit at the old entry point to San Cristobal. Traffic entered by passing through the arc, built as part of the church. Very beautiful interior that is not overdone.

Only a short walk from downtown through a very nice pedestrian street, this church and the adjacent park and museum of art are nice. Unfortunately, it was closed and we couldn't see the inside, supposedly very pretty. Well, next time I guess.

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
