Iglesia de la Santisima Trinidad

While it's not as opulent as some of the other churches nearby, Iglesia de la Santisima Trinidad has a charm of its own as a quiet sanctuary from the bustle in the busy streets around it.

The Iglesia de la Santisima Trinidad (Church of the Holy Trinity) isn’t the most opulent church you’ll come across in Mexico City, a city chock-full of opulent churches. But it has a charm of its own.

It sits on a busy pedestrian shopping intersection a few blocks from the Zocalo. Inside provides a quiet sanctuary from the bustle outside.

By the standards of other churches nearby, inside is relatively plain. It doesn’t have the kind of over-the-top altar of some others, but it does feature two interesting aspects. One is its incredibly ornate carved stone facade. The other is a series of stylized statues displayed prominent in the nave that are tributes to the crucifixion of Christ, Mary and Child, and a small case dedicated to children that’s packed full of donated toys.

Travel Insurance For Your Trip to Mexico

I never travel without travel insurance, and I've run into several situations where I've had to make claims. I consider it essential.

But shopping for travel insurance can be a pain and confusing. Thankfully, there are some travel insurance comparison sites that show you a wide range of plans, make it easy to compare coverage, and can save you money at the same time. And the coverage can be much better tailored to your specific needs than the checkbox offering at travel booking sites or through your credit card.

These are some good places to shop for travel insurance for your next trip to Mexico :

Hopefully, you won't need it, but if something goes wrong, you'll sure be glad you have it!
