It's a cute, little colonial church, very small, but with great detail. The inside is incredibly fresh (very nice when you've been walking outside at 36°C), with really well-preserved facade and wooden door.

This church is peaceful and gorgeous, but don't miss the gift shop that sells religious items and products made by the cloistered nuns who live just behind the church. The sugar cookies are melt in your mouth delicious, made by their delicate little hands!

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.

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).
