"The second church and convent..." Cathedrals & Cloisters Tip by la_beba
Cathedrals & Cloisters, Antigua Guatemala: 10 reviews and 10 photos
Favorite thing: The second church and convent were built from 1723 to 1734. The convent, a large cloister surrounded by a two-storied arcade, had cells for 46 nuns, a hospital with room for convalescing patients, a place for the novices, a sacristy, a dining room, kitchen, and even a ward for insane nuns. The earthquake of 1773 left Santa Clara practically in ruins for the second time, nevertheless the south side of the church, with intricate decoration in molded plaster, is one of the most interesting and well preserved in Antigua Guatemala.
