Bodegon de la CandelariaMore than 300 years old, this is a fine example of a Colonial upper class, large, private residence. Legend has it that Friar Alonzo de la Cruz, a Priest, who was then living in the residence, saw an image of the Virgin Mary, who told the priest to build a place of worship high upon a hill. The Convento de la Popa, now a famous tourist attraction, with a magnificent view of the city, is the result.
