Iglesia y Convento Domínico

Iglesia y Convento Domínico Review

Founded in 1510, this graceful building is still a Dominican church and convent. Note the prominent and beautiful rose window. In 1538 Pope Paul III visited here and was so impressed with the lectures on theology that he granted the church and convent the title of university, making it the oldest institution of higher learning in the New World.
