Ex-Convento Dominico de la Natividad

Ex-Convento Dominico de la Natividad Review

Rising above most of Tepoztlán's buildings is this buttressed former convent. It dates from the mid-16th century and has a facade adorned with icons dating from before the introduction of Christianity. Many of the walls, especially on the ground floor, have fragments of old paintings in earthen tones on the walls and decorating the arches. It is worth a visit just to see the building, which also houses temporary exhibits and a complete bookstore with a good selection of books, CDs, and videos.
