Why You Should Go

Templo de San Mateo Apóstol

  • Visiting Saint Matthew Apostle Church is to time travel, as it still has the original decoration from the Dominicans, characterized by colorful fleurs-de-lis.
  • Construction began in the 16th century, and, as the medallion in the entrance declares, it was inaugurated on April 20, 1731.
  • It has 14 invaluable wooden altarpieces. Some say they were made on location, but others claim they were brought from regions around the Sierra Norte mountains.

At the Very Least

Do a cleanse in the Centro de Medicina Indígena Tradicional.

Don’t Miss

  1. Listen to a Marimba Nueva Esmeralda concert with local kids.
  2. Watch the sun come up from the Mirador de la Cruz lookout point.
  3. Try the local delicacies prepared by families on Sundays under the archways downtown.
