Ex Convento de Santo Domingo de Guzmán, Hueyapan, Tetela del Volcán

Location: Hueyapan, Tetela del Volcán
Build between 1563 and 1573 (unfinished)
Monastic order that constructed it: Dominican
Main functions: Monastery
Architectural styles used: Baroque

Curious facts about the site: The cloister does not have a second floor and is much more modest than others as adobe was used on the walls and the ceilings are wooden beams and tile. The facade is austere and the temple is almost abandoned and closed. There is a construction between the cloister and the sacristy where is preserved an extraordinary baroque altarpiece carved in one piece of wood.
