This is not your run-of-the-mill colonial iglesia. This captivating structure, with an ornate blood-red tower and stonemasonry, was built in 1929 by the Yurrita family. The architecture shows a mix of styles from neo-Gothic to baroque. Many people think it could be the work of Antoni Gaudí, the famous Spanish architect. The interior colors and artwork are almost as spectacular as the exterior. Look for the painted glass window made to look like the daytime sky. This church is also known as La Capilla de Nuestra Señora de las Angustias (the Chapel of Our Lady of Anguish). You can tour the church in about 15 to 20 minutes, so come in a taxi and have the driver wait for you.
