This very old church is distinguished by its large dome supposedly modeled on the one at Les Invalides in Paris. From the interior, the dome's brick ceiling is amazing when you realize it was built hundreds of years ago.

This historically important property is home to sequestered nuns of the La Conception order. One of the most beautiful and important churches in the area. There is a gift shop with hand made items for church altars and priest vestments to take home to your own parrish.

Intimately cared for by cloistered nuns, the Iglesia de la Concepción is generally cool, clean, and quiet, with Masses at least twice a day (at 7:30am and 7pm).

Highly recommend a visit to this church which is a bit off the beaten track. They have English masses on a Sunday, but if you are not interested/ can't attend that then do still ahve a look at the beautiful altar, the oil paintings and the grand dome.

I had a such a lovely visit to this church. The main cathedral may lead many to overlook Iglesia de la Concepcion, but that is a shame because it is so beautiful and peaceful inside, it is definitely worth a visit.

An old church with a nice facade and huge dome inspired in the Invalides temple in Paris, worth a visit especially if you also have a look at the Nigromante Cultural Centre nearby.
