Iglesia de San Francisco
This temple mixes Baroque and neo-classical architectural styles. The high altar contains the wooden images of Jesús Crucificado and La Pasión. The church also shows the image of Inmaculada Concepción, a sculpture which was donated by Carlos V. This Franciscan temple was designed by architects of the religious congregation. Its construction started in 1800 and finished 29 years later. Iglesia de San Francisco is definitely a must-visit.
