This, we were told, is the largest ecclesiastic building in S America. It stand in a stark but magnificent square, and spans two city blocks. The exterior is awesome, but is the essence of simplicity, with patches of carved stonework seemingly attached to flat white-washed walls. The interior is vast, with a church, a monastery and many cloisters making up the complex, but pride of place goes to the stunning Courtyard ------- beautifully landscaped, and surrounded by a two-story arcade on 3 sides. It now serves as a museum, and we did not have time to actually go round it. Our sight of the church interior was also cut short, but the building and its square made a powerful impression, and I wish I had the time to come back subsequently.
