Del Carmen Arch in Moorish style - a significant symbol of San Cristobal

Carmen Arch in Moorish style, with hotel located on the site of Andador Eclesiastico. Arch del Carmen is all that remains of the former La Encarnacion monastery, which was founded in the 1597th. The original church was destroyed and rebuilt, only simple facade is preserved. An unusual feature of the church is its L-shaped appearance, which covers the southern and western part of the small square. The tower is a very important symbol of San Cristobal.
