Also known as El Guarda o Guarda Viejo, this church was built in a contemporary style and contains a valuable collection of Italian sculptures. The Salesian monks' biggest treasure is the Immaculada Concepcion de los Santos Reyes, which was transferred from the church of San Francisco in 1917 due to the earthquakes. This church works actively for children and low income families, providing them with education, workshops, food and many other resources. Confessions take place from Monday to Friday, from 3pm-6pm and Sunday during mass services, which are celebrated from Monday to Friday at 6a, 7a, 6p and 7p, Saturday at 6a, 7a, 4p, 5p, 6p and 7p, and Sunday at 6a, 7a, 9a, 10:30a, noon and 5:30p. The church also sells religious items such as books, cards, images and rosaries.
