Cathedrals & Cloisters, Antigua Guatemala: 10 reviews and 10 photos
Favorite thing: This is the Church and Convent of Santa Clara. The history of Santa Clara and the order of the Claristas nuns date back to 1695. The license for its establishment was obtained trough mediation of the Franciscan monk in the city. Founded by six nuns who came from Puebla, Mexico, the funds necessary for the establishment and maintenance of the nuns were provided through donation of local people, One of these was a widow who also gave her home, which served as a temporary residence for the nuns. Only bibliographic references remain of the original church and convent, since they were both destroyed in the earthquake of 1717.
