Interesting architecture
4/2019 • Pariskunnat
The museum itself is not really interesting and you only have some stones and local sculptures. But the architecture deserves the 2€ you pay per person. This opinion is obviously mine. I appreciated a lot the old Spanish style. Deserves a visit

A hidden gem!
3/2019 • Pariskunnat
I've been to a number of convents and monasteries and I thought I knew what to expect. What I wasn't expecting to see was a large collection of sculptures by sculptor Eladio De La Cruz. This, as well as a number of paintings, a small banana garden and the building itself is well worth the 2 euro entry!

For 2 euros this Convento is well worth visiting, the sculptures in particular are very interesting.

Worth a quick look
9/2018 • Pariskunnat
For a few Euros, its worth having a look around this building, which contains some interesting exhibits about the volcanic events of 1706 and later, art exhibitions (some very good sculpture upstairs) and good architecture. Not the biggest or best museum you will ever visit.

Historic atmosphere and space with small museum stuff
5/2018 • Kaverit
For only 2 € you can enter the convent and visit the 2 patios and see some exhibition about the history of Garachico and a geological collection.

Peaceful former convent
1/2018 • Kaverit
A visit to Garachico is not complete without going to this peaceful cloister with its Canarian pine pillars and collection of seashells. Some of the carvings on display were not altogether suitable for a monastery.

Interesting place

Entering this convent, means entering a place of rest and quietude. Nice original building with a well-equipped exposition hall. We visited an interesting exhibition about endemic plants of the Canary Islands.

Great place to visit
2/2017 • Pariskunnat
We were dropped off here by the land train. The church is situated in a plaza , surrounded by shops and houses. Inside there is an art gallery and a history of the building. Information is given in several languages making it easy to read about the church. A must see if you visit garachico

Great building but not quite for me
12/2016 • Pariskunnat
It was 2 euros to go in and yes it was very lovely inside, nice and cool too, the building really is worth seeing but there was nothing of interest in the exhibits for me. But do go, its worth the small entrance fee if you are solo or couple. I dont think I would part with entry for a family.

Another place worth visitng in garachico
1/2017 • Pariskunnat
And at 2Euros entry worth it. OK the interior is opem with two courtyards and an upstairs gallery. However there were displays of old photos of Garchico from the late C19 and early C20 with Spanish/ English texts; upstairs and excellent art exhibition by a talented pen and ink artist of local buildings etc, a small collection of shells/ minerals in cases around one courtyard and finally an excellent dsiplay of modernist sculpture.. Whether these exhibits are permanent or we were just lucky I don't know as I sdtuggled to get a reply from the chap on the door (probably my poor español)
