It is not unusual to come across monks or nuns in La Antigua Guatemala. This morning as I was driving past the San Francisco El Grande Church, I spotted a classic post card of Antigua Guatemala, so I parked, I prepared for the shot and waited for tourists or Antigüeños to appear. I had done three takes when the monk came into the viewfinder and so the shot was resolved.
This church is where Santo Hermano Pedro de Bentancourt was buried. You can check Pamela’s Tenerife Daily Photo for more background information about his birthplace. Or you can check the previous entries in Antigua Guatemala DP about Santo Hermano Pedro de Bentancourt (Saint Brother Peter of Bethancourt).
Can you still see monks in your home town?
