I found this place quite by accident and it was really interesting and it is quite easy to miss the ticket office

It is an informative museum and has things in Spanish and English which is always useful

We did this on a rainy day. It is a good filler if you are doing many of the more strenuous hikes around the city. It was our day off activity and we liked it.

This monastery shows how nuns lived in the 17th century. Inexpensive at S. 8.00 and worth the time. Beautiful artwork in one of the rooms.

Unexpected find behind the main square

This museum came as a package with the Museum of the Sun. It was a pleasant surprise for what it revealed about the lives of nuns. The collection within the walls of an active nunnery, were extensive and very well documented. The painted frescoes were a rare treat.

Surprisingly Informative Site
Feb 2014 • Couples
This "monastery" is really a nunnery. Founded by a rich widow, the site provides a view into how novitiates and young nuns lived in the 17th century. The site is also interesting because it is founded on the ancient Aqllawasi, the compound in which noble Incan women lived and devoted their lives to the Incan gods. The young Aqllas were obliged to remain unmarried and were forbidden contact with men.
