We were actually just wandering around and found this church. The first thing you notice from the outside is how slanted the church is. Wait until you get inside. Many of the building in Mexico City seem to be tilted due to the sinking soil, but this one takes the prize. Inside the church is quaint and a great place... More

Staying in Centro Historico

The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City.
