The Jesuits began this iconic church in 1610 and, although opened for worship in 1635, it was not completed until their expulsion in 1767. It was the largest church during colonial times and perhaps the most magnificent. It's undergoing a long-winded renovation. Hopefully when it reopens visitors should be able to see one of the city's most richly decorated churches.
