Los Descalzos convent

Recommended
The imposing Los Descalzos convent, built in 1594 to the glory of the Franciscans, cannot fail but delight. As you tour the refectory, infirmary, printing works or the library, try to picture the monks going about their daily business in the arcaded patios, gardens, chapels and courtyards of Moorish inspiration, possibly indulging in a spot of meditation yourself. The convent is also home to a particularly pleasant museum devoted to colonial art.
