A jewel containing some of the most ancient books in the world
Jan 2019 • Friends
This Franciscan monastery occupied from 1725 until 1975 contains an extensive library (of books and maps some of which date from the 15th century) , an extravagantly magnificent painted room telling the story of the missionaries who became martyrs trying to bring Christianity to the indigenous native tribes of the high jungle and a museum of stuffed birds, reptiles and mammals ( many of which are now extinct) Admittance only with a Spanish speaking guide and limited opening with no visits permitted Wednesdays.

Gave me the creeps! I liked it.

Went there when I traveled to Huancayo with my family. Though it was kind of late when we got there it was an amazing and creepy experience at the same time, Because we got to know the cloisters of the convent and the explanation of the tour guide was accurate according to what we were seeing, but the rooms were so dark that I just could see the place when taking a photo with the camera's flashlight on and also because there were not so many people (around 9 or 11 including the tour guide and us). Imagine staying a night there, it really gave me the creeps, but I liked it!
