Lonely Planet review

The most important church in Tegucigalpa, and therefore in Honduras, is the Gothic Basílica de Suyapa .La Virgen de Suyapa is the patron saint of Honduras; in 1982 a papal decree made her the patron saint of all Central America. Construction of the basilica, which is famous for its large stained-glass windows, began in 1954; finishing touches were still being added when we visited.
