Not the most impressive church but....you can climb for a view from the top (not many steps...your breath will survive). It is also located in a neighbourhood worth walking around, a bit off the main plaza.

Most of the small shops are open until 9pm, especially the ones in the center, near Plaza de Armas. The markets, though, close at 5pm.
