Owner description: This beautiful church contains artwork that was moved from La Merced in Antigua after that building was destroyed by earthquakes.

Many get confused with La Merced that is in Antigua. But they are very different. This one is the one in the City and its in a dumpy part of town. But it is worth the look. Although Antigua is the place to go.

A beautiful example of a colonial church has it could have been seen in Antigua Guatemala during colonial time.. As the church has been transported from Antigua to Guatemala after the city has been moved to Guatemala City

A great and unique surprize. All the carvings are from La Merced, Antigua and were transfered to Guatemala City when Antigua was abandoned.
A masterpeace and a must go to visit when in Guatemala despite the fact that Guatemala City is not a popular atraction.

The former Convent was taken by the Government several years ago and from that moment it went through a long journey becoming a jail, police hospital and finally... it was given back to the Catholic authorities and was transformed into a Museum with a vast amount of reliques and an impressive architecture. It worths a visit.
