Fodor's 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 the courtyard are 54 large-scale canvases portraying the life of St. Francis painted in Cuzco, Peru, as well as a plethora of religious iconography and an impressive collection of silver artifacts. Most pieces are labeled in Spanish and English. There are peacocks roaming the central courtyard.
