Grief Church has 3 peculiarities
1. It has a black dome at the back.
2. In the church's facade you will find strange figures like a stabbed heart, a sun, a ****, etc.
3. This church was built facing the south, while at that time, all spanish-colonial churches were built facing west, were the sun hid. Some people say this was like this beacuase Grief Church was made for the poor people, leaving St. Michael's Church, wich was 5 blocks away, for the rich.
