“Stunning at night”

The basilica is well maintained. It is also a cultural center. There is a thriving street food scene around the basilica.

“Huge beautiful church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

surrounded by two very large court yards. In one at 8am every weekday morning the municipal police meet to start their day with a marching band and receive their orders. Fun to watch.

Love Solidad- she is gorgeous. This is also the church for los indios. Attend a mass here, eat food in the plaza and buy a dress Frida would love.
