This is in the city and is now used as an event space. I didn't get to go in but it is worth walking by especially at night as it is very nice.

I have never been inside of this building but there was a gorgeous wedding that took place inside this place that was amazing. The facade on its own is beautiful and very representative of Antigua

I went to the Spanish school next door to this relic and got to witness fabulous weddings and sweet 15 parties for the entire month. After class, we would get together and sneak over to take peeks and walk the grounds. We would walk into...More

Check with the Escuela San Jose El Viejo. It is next door to the ruin and houses not only a language school but wonderful accommodations in beautiful garden. I just left there last week.
