Fodor's Review

The pretty whitewashed Iglesia de Santa Lucía dates from the town's founding in the mid-16th century. It is most notable for the wooden crucifix called Christ of Las Mercedes, a gift from King Felipe of Spain and brought here by the Spanish in 1574. Church doors are always open on Sunday; other days of the week, you may need to ask at the parish offices next door if someone can let you inside.
