Built in 1739, this church/convent ceased to have a religious function in the 1840s. In the late 1980s crypts and religious objects were dug up during excavations, and many of them were later incorporated into the Museo de Arte Religioso that opened on the site in 1994. Since 2005, part of the old monastery has functioned as a children's theater for the neighborhood's young residents. Classical concerts are hosted here.
