-First stop was at the Monasterio de San Francisco. This is one of those places that you long to photograph – but no photos are allowed! It’s in Moorish style, and is reminiscent of [{{:​holidays:​abroad:​peru:​bones.jpg|Past Occupants }]monasteries in Seville. This includes some wonderful ceramic tiles that were imported directly from Seville. As Art put it – what a bad deal – ship loads of ceramic tiles from Spain were paid for with returning ship loads of gold and silver from the Incas! There are also catacombs full of human remains (including a well) and (by far the best!) a library of ancient books that have never been restored, in a scene that looks like it is straight out of a Harry Potter movie.+First stop was at the Monasterio de San Francisco.

 One thing we loved about this monastery was that it hadn’t been over-renovated. It felt like there were still places to explore and secrets to find. One thing we loved about this monastery was that it hadn’t been over-renovated. It felt like there were still places to explore and secrets to find.
