How the Virtual Tour was made
I made the photography of Parroquía de Santa Ines in the middle of the morning, it was a beautiful sunny day and the light that came through the windows produced a very pretty illumination in the temple.
To avoid the windows being overexposed, I made a second shot with two steps underexposed and through a selection of channels in Photoshop; I merged the two images with the appreciated results.
