Behold the awe-inspiring Santa Clara ruins, a majestic monument that stands as a testament to the unparalleled beauty of Baroque architecture and is guaranteed to elevate any wedding ceremony to a level of unrivaled grandeur and splendor. Originally designed as a convent for the nuns of the Second Franciscan Order from Pueblo, Mexico, this magnificent structure was constructed in 1705. However, it was tragically devastated by an earthquake in 1717, leaving nothing but ruins in its wake. Yet, thanks to the remarkable restorative efforts of the visionary architect, Diego de Porres, the ruins were meticulously reconstructed and completed in 1734, preserving its awe-inspiring facade in all its glory to this very day.

Santa Clara offers a wonderland of splendid areas, allowing couples to host multiple events all in one magical location, from rehearsal dinner to the reception. The garden with a mesmerizing central fountain, radiates an undeniable charm that never fails to impress. The arched walkways create a romantic ambiance that will leave you and your guests mesmerized. You can even opt for a ceremony within the temple itself, where the open ceiling and stunning altar will lend an air of solemnity and grace to the occasion. However, do bear in mind that being entirely unroofed, it is less than ideal during the rainy season.

While the ruins are in close proximity to Antigua’s bustling city center, the venue’s tranquil ambiance will transport you and your guests to a different time and place. Let us make you feel enveloped in the rich history and beauty of the ruins, creating a wedding experience that is unforgettable and truly one-of-a-kind.
