Fodor's Expert Review Iglesia Museo Santa Clara

La Candelaria

The simple, unadorned facade of the 17th-century Church of St. Clara gives no hint of the dazzling frescoes—the work of nuns once cloistered here—that bathe the interior walls. The small museum has paintings and sculpture by various 17th-century artists. Guided tours are offered in English and Spanish.
