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 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. The inside provides a quiet sanctuary from the bustle outside.
By the standards of other churches nearby, the 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 prominently in the nave that are tributes to the crucifixion of Christ, Mary and Child, and a small case dedicated to children that is packed full of donated toys.
