And even more about Copala. Tired of it yet?
The church was built in 1748, If you really look at the pictures you'll notice differences in its building. Some of the stones are irregular, some have been shaped into rectangles. Bill took a good video of the church with the drone that really shows that off. I was walking around the church taking pictures from front to back.This really shows the difference. The front column has shaped stones, the side of the church and the extra area in the back have really irregular stones.
Whatever fit together.
This is taken in the back of the church.
Up the other side looking at the tower with the bells.
A closer look at the tower and bells. A lot of intricate work there. Imagine building this in the 1700's!
All the doors were closed to the public. More fancy work around the door.
Too bad part of it is falling apart.
See the gap on the top of the right side. Where a large chunk of trim is missing.
Here it is. Glad I wasn't around when it came down.
More pieces that have fallen off. Look at the trim around the window like area. And how irregular the stones on the side are.
Right below the arrow you can just see him.
Bill and Mark playing with the drone. I mention the different construction of the church because in one of Bill's videos he really gets good pictures of the church and the difference really shows up.
Waling up the cobblestone street between the restaurant and Alejandro's art gallery.
The flower covered home at the top of the street.
Looking back at the church. It was hard walking on the uneven cobblestones that make up the street. Especially in sandals.
The little Plaza with its gazebo and benches.
When we first started coming here this mural was new. Now it needs a lot of TLC.

We go out a different way then we come in. This is a VERY narrow - hope you don't meet another vehicle - street.
