Church of San Felipe

This is the church if San Felipe 2 km north of Antigua Guatemala completed by 1930. My memory of it is going (by car) up a steep hill for 2 long kilometers to a big church with a permanent fair infront. The hill is not as steep anymore the two kilometers ante shorter and the church smaller, yet the excitement of getting there remains. Two reasons to go there or through there (besides the obvious one of visiting the church which by the way is the home of the famous XXVII century image of "Senor Sepultado de San Felipe):

1 To buy hand made clay coin banks shaped as fruits or secret wood boxes.

2 Go through there on the way to Finca Filadelfia
