About
This massive convent was a thriving community of nuns from 1736 until the 1773 earthquake, after which it was abandoned. Now open to the public, tranquil gardens, sparse nuns’ cells and a terrific view from the roof make this a popular attraction.

They charge 40q for foreigners entry. It's been restored only to point to give you understanding of place but not overdone. It's a photographers dream. If you stand close to fountain and do a 360 you can see the past granduer of the place. In its day it must have been a wonderful cloister for the nuns and novices that lived there. The walls are so thick. Well worth the visit and really centrally located in town.

Really a place to visit, this female convent. Despite the earthquakes, this monument is well preserved. It also houses a very interesting museum. You will be able to admire the tower, an impressive circular structure of 18 cells around the central courtyard. A visit not to be missed if you are in Antigua.

We read the information at the front and then walked around ourselves. It's quite lovely with lots of photo ops. Not many people during the week except those working there.

This place is very well kept and has a lot of nice history and even a small museum inside. It is only second to Convento de Santa Clara in terms of its beauty and seeing this place really makes me imagine what life was like centuries ago

My cousin got married here. Such a beautiful place. I felt like borrowing my cousin's dress and run down the corridors while someone dressed as a centaur chases after me!!

These ruins and adjacent intact structures are well worth a visit. You can explore basically on your own.

I'm a sucker for visiting churches, and this is a good place to wander and reflect. And get out of the sun.

So you can pay to come in and walk around on your own, however, having a guide going through there is highly recommended. You would never know the history without that guide and we learned so much. He was able to do it in English which was so informative. The history of the grounds are incredible!!
