Colonial churches in Old Town

In the Old Town you will find a group of colonial style churches, which were moved from the original city in the beginning of 1673. Enjoy the religious architecture of these historic centers such as: Church of Nuestra Señora de Las Mercedes, Church of San José, San Felipe de Neri, the Company of Jesus, and Church of San Francisco de Asís with its exquisite restoration, and don’t forget the Convent and Church of Santo Domingo and the special Church of the Metropolitan Cathedral.
