This, the only Colonial-styled church in the city, built in 1682, was declared Cultural Her-itage of the Nation in 1982. The church, originally called Ermita de la Veracruz de los Forasteros (Visitors’ Hermitage of the True Cross), has a facade of plain-sight masonry walls and still proudly displays its main altar, brought in its entirety from Spain.
