Capilla del Cristo, San Juan: 2 reviews and 4 photos
This Chapel built in 16th century has a few interesting stories surrounding its history and those stories conflict wildly except on one point.
Someone on horseback took a terrible spill off the cliffs at the end of Calle Cristo. Whether he lived, and the chapel was built to commemorate the miracle, or whether he died and the chapel was to block off the street and prevent such an accident from happening again, is the part of the story that is in dispute.
The church is a historical landmark with a wrought iron gate and a single bell. There are some beautiful Campeche paintings inside and an interesting alter which can be seen church's glass covered doors.
The chapel is not open to the public.
