Probably one of the most prettiest churches I have been in. Definitely must check out the inside. Lots of detail in the church's interior.

Cant speak to the inside, but it is so beautiful lighted for night. Walk by on your what to dinner; or lounge in the plaza with a snack.

There are beautiful alters, saints, and ceilings to view while visiting this church. We were welcomed for a Sunday service which was spectacular as there was a native festival dance and so many were dressed up in traditional and exquisite regalia. There is a wonderful...More

The best guide ever is Omar Lescas Diaz. His English is wonderful and he knows "all" the history of the area. It may not be worth his while to do one building like this. He is excellent for Monte Alban and the natural tour... More
