Nuestra Señora de la Merced, Church and Convent - Historical Building Antigua - Guatemala

Most visitors would be content with a look at the dazzling yellow and white exterior but Baroque church lovers should take a peek inside as well. Keep an eye out for cute stucco berries. The convent next door requests a token payment. Also built in 1548 and subject to the usual run of earthquakes, little is left to show for the lives of past inhabitants. Check out views of the volcanoes and Antigua´s largest fountain from the second-floor.
