  • A piece of history for one to enjoy! Keep in mind SLP is a 430 + old city, these churches were built back in the days of glory. Don;t miss the opportunity to step in and enjoy the beautiful architecture of its interior. Religious historic figures and benches make it a wonderful experience. While down town, don;t miss the other many historic buildings and churches, swing by one of the Plaza de Armas restaurants and enjoy a typical meal in a nice environment.
  • A place where I have come for many years to recharge my spiritual life.
