The textile museum is part of the Exconvento de San Pablo, formerly used by the Dominicans before they moved to Santo Domingo church. The grounds are pristine and the large stone walls create a tranquil barrier, reliving visitors from much of the noise and chaos of the busy streets outside.

Beneath the structure, you can see some of the ruins that speak to the incredible history of the area. We also had a chance to see an exhibit of nacimientos, more than I have even included here. And, yes, Jesus was there even though he doesn’t officially arrive until tomorrow.
