Well worth a visit if you don't get there at the same time as bus loads of tourists. The church is well worth a visit and attached is the museum of sacred art.

Most churches throughout the Canaries are free to enter. However, this church in this historic village does charge a small 1.50 euro fee which is fine if you are really interested the interior of another church.

This is a delightful church in the setting of the Parque Rural. I am not a religious type but this old old church is really worth a visit whilst in this spectacular part of the island. Stunningly beautiful.

Hola Malevil!! me resulta curioso que no hayas disfrutado de una Iglesia de estas características (no solo por la belleza arquitectónica, sino también por el mensaje cultural que ella posee). Vivo en Italia y solo falta que nos cobren por respirar y probablemente en breve lo harán. Viajar es maravilloso, así todo te agradezco tu comentario, por apreciar los puntos de vista de otros turistas
