Dominating a large square, Los Dolores is a large, bright-white church with a relatively plain facade but featuring several beautiful pieces of religious art inside, including relief paintings of the stations of the cross, a gilded, carved altarpiece, and the painted interior dome. Unfortunately, it is often closed—visit on a Sunday or else try asking at the office on the side of the church for a peek inside.
Los Dolores, built in 1732, is a few blocks northwest of the downtown square. The street vendors that formerly mobbed the square have been moved into a covered market area on the east side of the plaza.
The street to the west of the church and behind it right around the church are none too safe at night but house a number of very cheap “hostels” for those running low on cash. The tiny pedestrian street that runs along the eastern side of the church is filled with ladies selling homemade tortillas.
