  • This monastery is located in the desert of la Candelaria 8 kilometres of Ráquira and thirty of Villa de Leyva. The monastery was founded in 1604. In the altar of the Church can be seen an altarpiece painted on a piece of Cedar representing the Virgin of Candelaria. In him claustre we can see some paintings of Vasquez Ceballos and a few antiques. It is a place where you can stay at the Posada San Agustin in clean rooms where reigns calm.

  • This monastery has a little museum, it shocked me to see the tools they used to inflict pain to themselves as a way to "punish the flesh". Thanks God times have changed.

The place is too cozy, the service is very good, they have restaurant and a large fireplace; the majority of the rooms are of 4 beds and a bathroom. The Church is beautiful and large patios make game with vegetation.
