Located on a hill at 150 m high, the former convent is located one kilometer from the fortress of San Felipe. His name is linked to the stern form of the hill. The first conflict between animists and Catholics took place on this hill. The legend is that a religious church in Saint Augustine, who arrived unexpectedly on the scene, surprised black slaves and Indians in the midst of a gold goat. He took the statue and threw it from the top of the hill. A convent was built under his direction on this site in 1608. It was only a small wooden chapel that was replaced by a stronger construction. After Independence, he was used as a military center. Abandoned for several years, he was restored by order of the monks of Saint Augustin. The chapel houses the statue of Our Lady of the Candelaría, the patron of the city, for protecting it many times from leprosy and pirates. The green patio, a beautiful panoramic view of the city.
