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.
