Photographer's Note

I expect Sunday mass is at 11:00 hours. The faithful, quite young, are lining up outside on the atrium (courtyard) for the occasion, all neatly dressed. The church on Calle 60 is at the junction with Calle 55. It was built with slave labour during the decade 1565 - 1575 CE by the conquistador and Governor Pedro Garcia, and located across the street (to the west) from a smallish park that was the venue for the discharge of passengers from out-of-town coaches (calesas?). The church would be a convenient venue for them to give thanks after a journey!
