Thought I would spend about 20 minutes visiting this Convent, but ended up spending and hour and could have used a little more time. This was a nice surprise. It was a typical church/small type cathedral, but it was larger inside than I anticipated. After seeing the Old and New Cathedral, I thought this would be smaller and that I would not need much time to experience St. Stephen's. While you can quickly walk through the convent in 15 - 20 minutes, to experience it, give yourself more time if you want to read and visit all of the chapels, side rooms and both floors. I did try to visit it mid afternoon and it was closed for 1 1/2 - 2 hours in the afternoon. Plan to visit in the morning or in late afternoon. (I believe it was closed from 2 - 4 p.m. in March 2013). I visited it late afternoon after 4:00 p.m. There is another convent right beside St. Stephen's, but I was unable to visit it because of time constraints. Make sure to visit the museum on the second floor of St. Stephen's.
