The church is at the top of some stairs and it's worth the walk up. Nice views of the surrounding San Cristobal area and inside the church has been done up and looked after. A nice change of pace and a quiet and relaxing area.

This is our sunny day walk destination. Always an interesting walk, and always great views. Step inside for some old-world religion. Always worth the effort.

We were disappointed when we got close to the church. It looks beautiful from afar, but uninteresting when you get there. Also make sure you check the opening times as we got there at 6pm and it was closed.
