Colegio de San Jerónimo information
Built in 1757, the Colegio de San Jerónimo was used as a school by friars of the Merced order, but because it did not have royal authorization, it was taken over by Spain's Carlos III and, in 1765, designated for use as the Real Aduana (Royal Customs House). Today it's a tranquil, mostly open-air site.
The handsome cloister centers around an octagonal fountain – it's an evocative setting for dance and other cultural performances. Upstairs you'll find excellent photo angles of Volcán Agua through stone archways.
