It's just a general store. Outside it stands out but inside it's nothing special. It has history but the fact that it's just general store depreciates it. You could walk by without assuming there was anything special about it unless someone told you.
The building itself is not the interesting, but the history makes it a little more special. Worth a quick stop to check it out if you are near the plaza.

We did not go in, but having seen one of Eiffel's churches in Loreto, Baja del Sur, Mexico, we didn't want to miss this!!
