Alcantara :  Alcantara1  Alcantara2  Alcantara3

This is our second favorite city after Merida. There are many well preserved place of worship within the old city area and the town itself is rather quiet, devoid of the throngs of tourists common in other historical towns.
Convento de San Benito built as the headquarters of the Knights of the Order of Alcantara during the 16th century.
View inside the dome, much of the building has undergone restoration and presently under the care of the Fundacion San Benito de Alcantara.
