The front of the Capilla de la Tercera Orden Dominica

Constructed around 1514 this building was originally part of the Iglesia y Convento de la Orden Dominica Entre la Capilla y la Iglesia. This church, as with most churches here, was first constructed of wood while the desired bricks and building materials were collected. This is now the home of the church offices and the minister. It is also a popular place for filmmakers to make movies.
