The architecture of the church is modern, and it would have been easy to pass it by without realizing that it was a church.

I Stand Corrected
The other day I wrote that I found it strange that I did not see any churches in "Colonia Nápoles", the neighborhood where I am staying. Well, today, during my wanderings, I found one... the parish church of San Antonio de Padua.
The interior is quite striking. Unlike most Mexican churches, there were no side chapels and there were very few images of saints. The window behind the altar appears to be made of thin sheets of translucent onyx.
So, I stand corrected. Religion does exist in Nápoles after all.
