A few blocks northwest from the central plaza, the pleasant, white, domed Iglesia Los Dolores, completed in 1732, sits next to the small Plaza Los Dolores. Its Baroque facade is decorated with a representation of the Passion of Christ, featuring a crowing cock and the rising sun; inside, the elaborate gold altar dates from 1742. A choir usually sings at 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The plaza itself is crowded with cheap, shabby stalls.
