Querétaro, day 7

We took a tour of a convent was built between 1654 and about 1815. Now it functions as a religious school.

A courtyard

 Another courtyard

We also visited a monastery built between 1731 and 1748, now an art museum.

Templo de San Agustín, next door, is still a functioning church.

View from the restaurant where we stopped for a break.

Another church, still decorated for Christmas.

Museo Regional de Querétaro

Templo de Santa Clara

In one museum we visited today they had an exhibition of Nativity scenes created with different materials. This one is made with corn husks.

And this one uses twigs, bark and leaves.

This nativity scene is made of telephone wire!
