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 depiction). Since 1990 the church has been restored and it now hosts concerts in its nave. The galleried cloister houses an exhibition of 16C ceramics and pottery, as well as religious objects and furniture.
