Iglesia de Santa Mónica information
The Iglesia de Santa Mónicawas begun in 1574 and was originally intended to serve as a monastery for the Ermitañas de San Agustín. However the order ran into financial difficulties in the early 1590s, resulting in its conversion into a Jesuit school. The interior is adorned with mestizo carvings and the courtyard is one of the city’s finest. The church now serves as a civic auditorium and is only open to the public during special events.
