The dome of Las Monjas from the Bellas Artes, San Miguel

The upper gallery of the newly restored Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes building in San Miguel de Allende gives a splendid view of the dome of the church of the Convent of La Concepción, known locally as Las Monjas, literally, The Nuns. The Bellas Artes building provides a home for many artists and craftsmen on the two levels of studios and galleries that form what was originally the magnificent cloister of the Convent dating from 1755.
