Parroquia de San José Iturbide

Located in the opposite corner of the main square, it is considered one of the most impressive religious constructions in the country.

If you enjoy adrenaline and extreme sports, you must visit the Cañón de los Milagros or the Iglesias, located in the community of Buenavistilla in the municipality of San José Iturbide.
