Couvent ecce homo, Villa de Leyva

4.2
#4 of 9 in Museums in Villa de Leyva
Enter Couvent ecce homo through an impressive red-brick and whitewashed-stone facade, and examine five centuries of architecture and artifacts. Originally built in 1620, this restored Dominican convent houses a collection of items including artworks and vestments, all telling the story of its colonial history. Much of the stone used in the convent and chapel was quarried in the region's richly populated fossil beds; look for ammonites and fossils embedded in the floors and altars.

  • I think that making the way to the convent is absolutely worthwhile. I also believe that empowering people charged with receiving a little better would be better. We asked where was the Ecce Hommo and they didn't respond. At the end is simple, on the altar, but for anyone who has never seen one, could be confused with others. I think that they should have a guide as the destination if that is worth it.

  • It is a very well-preserved monastery. It shows us the tranquility that is so large that they had to have the monks for their insights. The silence in this place is wonderful
