Museo Colonial de San Francisco Review

This monastery adjacent to Iglesia San Francisco houses the best collection of 17th-century colonial paintings on the continent. Inside the rooms wrapping around an overgrown courtyard are 54 large-scale canvases portraying the life of St. Francis painted in Cuzco, Peru, as well as a plethora of religious iconography. Most pieces are labeled in Spanish and English. Franciscan friars still occupy the second floor.
