The cafes that line the streets leading up to the church are wonderful, full of people and definitely worth seeing. The church is big and seems new but when you go inside it has a unique musty flavor in the air. The entrance is on the right side of the church, so you'll have to go in further to explore... More

Lovely church in centre of town, well worth a visit. Beautiful wall art inside and peaceful garden with seats outside. I liked the candles as i had never seen them before. 20 cents in the slot and it flickered a candle and then illuminated it. Saves on candle buying and wax!

The church is quite large and has several large altars each of which have impressive carvings, many of these are several hundred years old painted in great detail and some are clothed. Well worth a look.

Walking around for the first time in Puerto de la Cruz is so much fun, because at every corner you discover something new. When we turned the corner and saw this beautiful church, we were mesmerized. So peaceful to be in the garden in front of the church and just relax for a moment.

Beautiful church, with a very interesting museum costing only 2 euros which I thought was great value for money.

A lovely little church situated in a beautiful square in one of the more traditional locations in the town. Was lovely and peaceful at times and very calming - by contrast we also witnessed singers and a band on one occasion which was enjoyable and could be heard from some distance away ! Lovely to sit, reflect and soak up... More

A small church, very appropriate for the island. A lovely small square surrounds it, with some beautiful trees and lovely swan fountain. There was also a temporary figure in the square, apparently waiting for a local flower fair. Inside of the church is a contrast between stark white walls and richly adorned altarpieces with figures of saints dressed according to... More

Wholesome and healing with the enthusiastic local community in attendance and quite a good turnout. Doubles-plus for no organ during the service, all singing was beautifully a capella. Churches are not museums - it is what goes on in them that matters.

A visit here is a must for those that like to see all the beautiful work that is around this area. The Church is so peacful and calming, the inside is something to be astounded by. The work of the men and women who created such a beautiful quite place is something to be thankful for.
