The public square beside this church houses dozens of scribes hired by those who cannot read or write to pen anything from legal documents through to love letters) and printing kiosks which use ancient printing methods for wedding invitations and presentation cards. A must see.
- This Baroque church dates back to 1736. It once used to be part of the first Dominican convent built in New Spain, which was all but destroyed in 1861. The front façade is beautifully decorated, with a relief of the Assumption of the Virgin in the centre and twelve columns that surround the church's main entrance. It is also worth taking a look at the side of the building, where there are some wonderful carved stone figures of Santo Domingo and San Francisco, linked arm to arm.
