The exterior of this church is worth the trip to see it. It is one of the few places we were able to walk by in Guatemala City. Unfortunately it was not open when I was there, so I did not get a chance to...More

The church is seldom open but its history is really interesting as it is a private church.It is beautiful with incredible architectural details and I saw many people taking pictures of it.

This is a church that you won't be able to take your eyes off. It is beautiful with many, many architectural details. Even though the inside isn't open most days, it is well worth the time to stop and admire the exterior.

It all started with a businessman´s spiritual promise. He ended up spending decades and probably his fortune building this shrine of devotion, resembling the churches of parts of Spain.

The church is much more interesting in person than in this (or even my photos). Something you can easily see while you are walking about the city.
