"Consecrated in 1736,..." Cathedrals & Cloisters Tip by la_beba


Favorite thing: Consecrated in 1736, Capuchinas was the last convent founded in Santiago, for the first time in the history of the city, no dowry was required, a practice, which had prevented under privileged girls from entering the religious orders. Capuchinas is a magnificent example of an eighteenth century convent.
