Reviewed 2 April 2011

as soon as you walk in, all your senses let you know that you are in a church, the smell of the church, the candles flickering, the light just right, the sounds of muffled praying, and the way everything fits perfectly!!! not to much or too little. not to big or too small. like a perfectly maintained rare classic car that is driven daily.
as you go in, stop and take a look if you can, the carved pink cantera on the left. they carved a wicker basket and through the weave, they carved a baby inside.
apart from this church, the original church is underneath.
this is super simple to get to. it's right across the street from the jardin de union. how can you not go??
