This space is so beautiful with incredible gardens intermingled with the ruins. A great place for photographs and to let the kids run around a little.

I love exploring Antigua, and this convent is lovely. The architecture, the gardens -- the views! Peaceful space to explore during your stay in Antigua.

Staff remembers you from one year to the next. Excellent tortilla soup. Close to church bells. I love them. If you want to sleep in, take ear plugs.

Very interesting ruins of an old house of nuns. Inside you will see the front of an old church probably the most beautiful in Antigua. Beware of non authorized guides. Their porpuse is to get your money

I married here some 3 years ago. It's a fabulous ruin. At first glance my wife to be knew it was the venue she wanted. I visited it again recently with some friends and I have to say some of the renovations are making it lose its charm. I would have given it a 5 but sadly closing public access to the tunnels, laying new tiles etc its not the same
