Former church and monastery converted into a museum
Ex-Convento del Carmen is a fascinating museum that emerged from a site that used to be a significant church and monastery. This structure is one of the country’s best examples of colonial architectural. This former convent continually attracts visitors due to its beauty.
The decor inside Ex-Convento del Carmen comes from a typical Catholic design with only simple tiles. You will notice the tranquil atmosphere that seemingly invites people to meditate. Interestingly, you can find a tiny collection of small wax dancers, a dozen priests mummified, and several arts in the colonial era.
When you visit Ex-Convento del Carmen, you can wander around the establishment even in the cells below and the dining hall. There used to be art works by contemporary artists in the side rooms of the building. You should not miss out on this attraction in the city.
