Lonely Planet review

There’s a sublime simplicity about the Capilla de las Capuchinas Sacramentarias , the chapel of a convent for Capuchin nuns designed by modernist architect Luis Barragán in 1952. The austere altar, free of the usual iconography, consists only of a trio of gold panels. Visit in the morning to appreciate how light streams through the stained-glass window by Mathias Goeritz.
