Tiny and beautiful located in the town's main square on Isla Flores. Go for a stroll and enjoy this little village's main square, Governor' House and Cathedral!

This church is set on top of the highest point of the island so worth the climb just for the amazing views from the small plaza in front of the church. Also of interest is to see the Black Jesus.
