iglesia y convento de la recolección

Anno 1701 the monks in antigua placed an order to built a magnificent church together with a monastry. In 1708 it was done and nothing was saved, thick walls were created with powerful arcs. just 65 years later, in 1773, the earth was wobbling and the complete monastery was fucked up. It was never rebuilt, still today huge clusters of depris are lying in the nave and with some imagination you could assume that quite some cowls lie beneath them.

In the next centuries almost every building in Antigua suffered this fate, many were reconstructed and if just the facade was rebuild and strengthened massively on the rear side.
