Once you enter the convent you will be amazed at the size, the wood floors,, the underground cistern which the friars built . Look beyond the stone walls and feel the pulse of history .

The antique edifice was quite well preserved and the old wood fascinating. This is a good spot for photography on the windows and stairs. There were school classes ongoing, but the atmosphere was still so serene.

We had a fun time taking pictures of the well-preserved structure. It is just right across the church. The locals are polite and friendly.

This will be part of any day trip I suspect and worth every minute. From historic buildings and churches to beautiful tree-lined streets to the sound of children happily playing at school - this was a great place for a walk and a drink.

Located right across the Lazu Church. Even bigger than the church. Grounds are well maintained though building is really old.

The convent had that historical and hispanic feel to it when you go inside. It will feel like you went back in time. The interiors which are made of wood is great for photos. It would be better though if there were guides to explain the history and significance of the convent.

Seeing the old convent brought me back to old era. The trees surrounding the convent completed the picturesque scenery.
