The guide was superb in explaining the beautiful ruins as the convent was impacted by the earthquake. It was not hard to workout what it was like.There is a small garden which is well kept kept with plants and flowers.

Great place to visit and imagine what it must have been like before it was ruined by an earthquake. The courtyard is lovely to see and you get some nice views etc for pictures.

It’s a must see in Antigua. Beautiful ruins combined with nice gardens. Good place to take pictures.

That people destroy places of history by the need to write on walls is terrible. Some of these ruins in Antigua have unfortunately fallen prey to this. The arches, openings, fountain, and layers of exposed walls are beautiful to photograph. The catacombs are nothing.

Convent of the Clarisas in the colonial times. Still in fair condition to see and imagine what it looked liked. There are many nun's secrets in this place. Discover them!
