Why locals love it

The first Ecuadorian Saint was Mariana de Jesús, a 17th century girl who used to live here until her death in 1645. In 1653 her family donated the old house to the order of the Discalced Carmelites and since then the several generations of noons have lived cloistered until 2013 when after a restoration process the monastery was opened as a museum.
