Last stand against the Spanish Sep 29, 2010
The Spanish conquest of the city ended here on July 25th 1531,

where this magnificent convent was later built. During the battle between the Spaniards and the local indigenous people,

a vision of a cross in the sky appeared to all. With both sides in awe, the battle ended abruptly. A replica of that cross, carved in stone, is suspended above the main altar of the church.

Coincidentally, thorns in the perfect shape of a cross grow on an extremely rare ancient tree found in the garden of the convent.
