Church and Convent of San Francisco de Asís

Recommended
Completed in 1591, this church played an important religious and cultural role in Latin America. In 1842, the church was converted into a warehouse; four years later, the apse was destroyed in a storm (replaced by a trompe l'oeil painting). Since 1990, the church has undergone restoration and is now used to host concerts. The nave displays ivories and silverwork, while the cloister is home to a model of the convent and a collection of religious objects.
