NileGuide Expert tip:

You should visit all the churches close to this one. Is kind of a church tour, but definitely a beautiful thing to do in San Andres. There is a special Guide for this stroll.

Description:

Cholula is filled with churches, legend has it there are 365 domes in this city, one for each day of the city.
This is a beautiful small Tonantzintla-like church in San Andres. The images on the facade were made by indigenous hands, and though they may seem coarse, they are actually beautiful for the locals tried to copy what the Spaniards were doing during the Viceroyal era.
It only opens for mass, but it's beautiful on the outside too. If you are lucky enough to find it open, go inside, you'll love it.
