It is a parish church. While its roots go back to 1680 the present church was consecrated in 1810. The original niche containing the blessed sacrament was recovered during renovations in the 1950’s.

This church is not elaborately decorated. It has a felling of serenity and the music is a nice touch.

An old church worth a peek. It is fairly plain, but has some interesting features. It also gave our muslim colleague a place for her to do her evening prayer. There is also a painter that has a small studio outside, to the right back...More

Lovely small church with heritage and history. The Santos are worthy of note ... front right and back right corner is a real wonder of carving. - Q-trip: retreat across the street to el Drug Store for a Capp in the sun on the street.

A gorgeous church with a simple unadorned interior and a lovely calming vibe. A lovely change after the many overdone churches I had seen

This church is cool, as it so simple in it's presence. A great place to contemplate, and seeing the photos reminds me of the beauty in it's simplicity.

This basilica is quite spectacular and well kept. I visited in January, so the nativity was still on display as it was Epiphany. Also saw the inside, which was quite remarkable. Overall, I thought this was the best sight/attraction in the town of Colonia del...More

The Basilica has a most unusual altar feature for its time and even now; an back lit semi-circular alcove that features a very large monstrance (receptacle for displaying the Sacred Host or Blessed Sacrament). There are many statues of the Virgin and saints. The outside...More

This church is already a few hundred years old but is still well preserved. Although the interior is simple, there is a column which is original. Free entrance and worth a visit.
