Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

Valladolid, Yucatan-Mexico

This window belongs to the Convent of San Bernardino de Siena (Saint Bernardine of Siena). The Franciscan order built and founded the convent, whose construction began in 1552 and was finished in 1560. The purpose of its establishment was the evangelization for the conversion to Christianity of the Yucatec Mayan descendants. So imagine what the Franciscan monks saw four centuries ago through this window, or what the mayas saw inside the window on those days, when for both groups the culture of the other ones was totally unknown.
