Reflection

Church and Convent of San Francisco

Morelia in Michoacan, Mexico is named an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991 for its well preserved colonial buildings and layout of the historic center.

The Church and Convent of San Francisco in Morelia is one of the two oldest religious buildings in the historic centre. The architectural style of this building is known as plateresqueis from the Spanish Renaissance. The exterior of the convent spots Moorish windows on the second floor while the interior courtyard is reminiscient of the medieval period.
