Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

Went out exploring the town today. First stop Plaza San Martin.

Then onto Plaza Armas, was hoping to catch the changing of the guard. The guide book says 12pm sharp, the hostel says 11:45am, the local policeman says; "It's running late, maybe 12:30". In Latin America, nothing is on time...

Usual obligatory big church - there's a fair few of them here.

But this one was actually quite interesting, big crypts. Sadly no photographs allowed so you'll have to imagine the 4 meter deep containers of thigh bones and skulls.... I think that I have definitely played too many computer games where skeletons suddenly come to life to really enjoy this kind of place.
