NileGuide Expert tip:
Wear respectful attire (no jeans, flip flops, or bawdy t-shirts, por favor).
This is the oldest church in San Lucas and the most popular. The Iglesia Catolica de San Lucas was built in 1730, and retains its historic colonial character. It is open to visitors daily from 9am to 6pm, with three masses on Sunday (8:30am, noon, and 7pm), and one Saturday evening (7pm). Attending mass here is a great introduction to the local people and culture, but be forewarned that masses are in Spanish with the exception of the noon mass on Sunday. If you are visiting in December, the Feast of the Virgin of Guadalupe is celebrated on the 12th (the church is alternatively known as the Santuario de Guadalupe), and the "Empress of the Americas" is commemorated in the masses. There is no air conditioning here, so dress accordingly, albeit respectfully, during the summer months.
