Templo y Convento San Francisco, Santa Fe
(4.6/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Admire the early colonial church and attached museum at Templo y Convento San Francisco. Dating back to the 17th century, the church displays a humble facade, with whitewashed walls and an attractive bell tower to one side of the main entrance. Step inside and look up to see the intricately woven roof, made without nails by the indigenous population. The attached museum displays artifacts from around the town, with a good collection of colonial weaponry, clothing, and handicrafts.

  • The convent of San Francisco is a sample of the Jesuit influence in the city of Santa Fe (in their new location, the place where, on 15/11/16, it is located 443 years ago). Similarly, it occurred with the old Santa Fe, Santa Fe la Vieja, in Cayastá, about 80 km from the capital city of the province. On-site enjoy the old galleries, the Church of San Francisco (many bride and groom chose her to celebrate their wedding with the memory and the Jesuit imprint). Add you that in the area and at the College of the immaculate conception was several years ago, "maestrillo" Jorge Bergoglio (today the Pope Francisco), because that belongs to the Jesuit order. If you visit the capital of the province, in the historical district, near the gray House (headquarters of the Government of the province) and of the courts of Justice, will find this historical place surrounded by old parkland and facing Lake Park from the South, cooling the area.
