It is a museum nowdays but it was once the temple of sisters Clarisas' convent. Colonial art can be appreciated with the works of Gregorio Vásquez de Arce y Ceballos, Los Figueroa y De La Cruz amongst others. Its walls have a barroque style, and there are parts where mural paintings from the XVII century can actually be seen. It's very cheap to go there, though last sundays of each month is free.

At the beginning of the foundation of Bogotá, this park was known as "the park of the herbs". It used to compete in importance with Bolivar's Plaza since very famous personalities lived around it and also there were two of the first religious comunities in the city: The Franciscans and Dominics. Nowadays it's a good place to rest or walk after having had lunch. Around it you have the Gold Museum, the Jockey Club, The churches San Francisco, The third, and Veracruz.

Films about galaxies, stars, constellations, an other phenomena are projected here via advanced technology. There are also astronomy workshops for children and conferences for adults. Here you will also see Bogotá's museum, the urban development museum, and Santa Fe's Gallery.
