Cuilapam Convent (Convento de Cuilápam) Tours and Activities

star-4.5
60 Reviews

Tucked away into the hillside of Culipam, this former Dominican convent offers travelers a bit of Mixtec, Spanish and Zapotec history, as well as some spectacular views. Once home to praying monks, today this tranquil destination draws travelers in search of a quiet respite from the hustle of city life. It showcases black and white mural paintings, as well as artifacts from the Anthropology and History National Institute, which is housed on the convent’s second floor. The nearby open-air chapel, which was built without a ceiling due to ancient fears of closed spaces, is another convent site worth checking out.
