Iglesia de Santo Domino

By backpackguru in Entertainment
The best time to visit the Iglesia de Santo Domino is in the late afternoon, when the low sun hits the church so that it glows a beautiful gold. It's a stunning church, with the interior decorated in impressive Baroque styles. The intricate details make is one of the most impressive churches I've seen. Much of the work has actually been restored, after it had been damaged beyond repair hundreds of years ago. If you visit the church in the evening, the front courtyard will likely be filled with people. If you want some quiet, head to the smaller courtyard to the side. Even if you've had your fill of churches, or you aren't that intrigued, still visit Iglesia de Santo Domino, as it is that impressive.
