Inside the La Merced Church and Convent is a delicate work of art. The church façade is without a doubt a classic example of predominant construction. The rooms in the structure date back to the 17th century. In 1749 Juan de Dios Estrada was commissioned with the construction of the luxurious sanctuary and cloister.
This breathtaking church is a destination you will not want to miss while visiting Antigua Guatemala. You will have to pay a small fee to enter the monastery attached to the side of the church. This part of the building was never restored after the destruction caused by the Santa Marta quake.
