About Temple and Ex Convent of St. Francis

Built between 1596 and 1660, its walls saw the Franciscans who came to the region pass with the aim of evangelizing the indigenous people. It has gone through several modifications, such as that of the 18th century when cruises, anti-sacristy and sacristy were added to it, or after being dynamited in 1924. Now it has exhibition halls and the School of State Arts and you can also admire several oils of the century XVIII.
