One of many ruined churches in the city, this multi-domed church is often visited by pilgrims seeking answers to their prayers from Friar Hermano Pedro, the beatified 17th-century monk buried inside.

Wonderful to be able to visit Hermano Pedro's final earthly resting place. The church has rooms filled of notes and souvenirs of thanks for miracles performed.
