3.9/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web
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.
