La Recoleccion, Antigua

4.3
#8 of 15 in Historic Sites in Antigua
Fragments of pillars, caved in roofs, and collapsed walls are all that remains at La Recoleccion, once a grand church in the area. Built in the 17th century, the building acts as a testament to the might of Mother Nature. It has been destroyed and reconstructed numerous times due to earthquakes. The latest earthquake raised this building to the ground in 1976. Head through the arch and up the stairs, where the original entrance to the building once was. Visitors can expect great picture opportunities throughout. Plan to visit La Recoleccion and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Antigua attractions using our Antigua trip planner.
