Fodor's Review

Adjacent to Bellas Artes cultural center this church—aka "Las Monjas" ("the nuns")—has one of the largest domes in Mexico. The two-story dome (completed in 1891) and the elegant Corinthian columns and pilasters gracing its drum are said to have been inspired by Paris's dome of the Eglise des Invalides. Zeferino Gutiérrez, the architect of La Parroquia, is credited with its design.
