    Centuries Old Church - Capilla del Cristo

    Inside the Capilla del Cristo

    This old church was built centuries ago. The legend behind it is that a young man on horseback plunged over the cliff that this church is located on. During his descent he prayed to one of the Catholic saints to spare his life. Legend has it that he survived and the horse died. The church was built to commemorate this spectacular event. The church is beautiful and has a large amount of pigeons around it. Directly to the right of the church is a little park where schoolchildren come and feed the pigeons. The church has 2 large iron gates that lead inside. If you are lucky you will find them open and get to look inside. The inside is inlaid in gold and has a couple frescoes that are worth seeing.

    Christ Chapel's small silver altar is dedicated to the Christ of Miracles. According to legend, the chapel stands in honor of a youth whose life was spared in 1753 when his horse miraculously stopped before hurling the two of them over the city wall.
