The Crypt


In 1949, Gabriel García Márquez was sent as a reporter to cover the story of a crypt found during one of the excavations made in the former convent. It inspired him to write the book “Of Love and other demons” (1994) based on the story of the Santa Clara Convent.

You can visit our crypt daily until 5.30pm. If you wish to learn more about the legend of the Santa Clara, enjoy a 30-minute free legendary tour around our property with our Butlers.
