Restoration of the Monastery of Santo Domingo de Soriano entitled "San Pablo". Located just one block from the main square of the city of Oaxaca, between Independencia and Hidalgo streets, it is a collection of houses / buildings forming part of the first Dominican convent in the city. Up until three years ago, the former convent of San Pablo was in a building distorted by a series of additions of little historical value that affected the building not only aesthetically - leaving the building completely drowned within these aggregates, but also because they affected the structure of the old building by the enormous amount of added load. For the first part of the restoration, the original structure was relieved, demolishing the vast majority of additions. Thus we managed to recover almost 90% of the high and low corridors of the convent, part of the church and the entire Rosary Chapel. View more View full description
