Iglesia y Convento de San Francisco de Asís
A Catholic church and monastery that dates back to the 16th century.
Plaza San Francisco is dominated by the Iglesia y Convento de San Francisco de Asís (Church and Convent of San Francisco of Asis). This baroque church and convent, completed in 1730, today puts on classical concerts and is chock-full of religious icons in the Museo de Arte Religioso. The museum is filled with relics, many dating back to the 17-century. Don't miss the garden dedicated to Mother Teresa.
