Fantastic! And repeated in English at 9.30. Walk there down a lovely street with boutique shops and restaurants. Wish we’d discovered it all before our last night.

Amazing. Plain and simple. Didn’t get to tour the grounds as was late but understand they too are lovely. But seeing it at night is wonderful. Totally recommend.

This is a historical site, inside there is a small museum. The entrance is 30 pesos and there is not so much to see, maybe to make photos it is worth a visit.

A beautiful old, traditional, colonial church that still holds regular services. Great for photos. Seemed to always have a service in session which was interesting to see how religion plays a role in the lives of many Mexicans.

We really enjoyed this convent, it is a historical place, beautiful, with any donation they give you access to the place, we were surprised by the beautiful landscape

We didn't enter the building, just visited its exterior. It is picturesque, but not worth an entire trip to Valladolid for. If you are there in the evening (9PM in August), there is a free "videomapping" show in which images are projected onto the walls...More

The space around the Convent is really nice to walk, very peaceful, shiny and clean, and if you seat down ( in the shade of course) you can go back a few centuries and image the scenery 400 years ago. The Church was very powerful...More

At the end of the Paseo de los frailes, downtown area, it's a nice walk through a boutique/coffee/barber shop street reminding one of the Spanish "paseo", the convent is at the end, facing a park... Really nice stroll, with a nice restaurant on the corner...More

Our hotel was right by the Convent so it was the first thing we visited in Valladolid. A very peaceful place with an interesting history. At night, the light show is in Spanish and then English. It is nothing short of spectacular! A brilliantly colored...More
