ARCHAEOLOGICAL AREA

It is now possible to observe the main navel of the temple whose altarpiece is a modern composition.  In the excavations only the grey stone table or predella of the altar that runs along the main altar was found.  Also the main cloister and a replica of the original fountain, the cemetery and the crypts where the Calvary crypt stands out, housing a perfectly conserved 17th century altarpiece.

Some of the rescued spaces offer an array of collections of cultural heritage pieces from Guatemala.
