This former Dominican monastery, is situated close to the center of Inca city, in the street of same name. The Dominican monastery, is a beautiful sight to see during your trip down the streets of Inca.
The monastery, was built between 1664 and 1689. A walk inside this beautiful old building, reveals the sacred lives of the monks. Enjoy a stroll around the green courtyard, and the many paintings inside. There’s also a church attached to the monastery, as well as the city library.
The Dominican monks lost the monastery of Santo Domingo, back in 1835, when prime minister of Spain, Juan Mendizábal, seized all monasteries in Spain, and sold them to private investors, in order to collect money to support queen Isabella II, in the first Carlist war.
Today, the monastery is used as public offices.
