Iglesia de La Merced reviews
Centrally located and a beautiful building hard to miss. The sign out front is hard to read due to graffiti. Once inside take your time and look at all the religious art. more »
The church is a little different from the rest and is that what makes it so beautiful. It's very close to the Plaza de Armas. Sometimes the front entrance is closed, try the one on the side. more »
