Garden at Church of San Francisco in Antigua, Guatemala

The Brother Pedro statue and tomb are located in the Santo Hermano Pedro Garden to the left of Iglesia de San Francisco. These arches are part of the former Concepción Chapel. Apparently, the saint planted one of these Esquisuchil trees in the mid-17th century. Adjacent are the remains of the Franciscan monastery. In the late-18th century, this was among the biggest and most beautiful convents in the city. Here you will find the Hermano Pedro Museum. Among the artifacts are crutches of people healed during a pilgrimage. Of special interest is the saint’s bell displayed in a showcase. He used to ring it while wandering the streets of Antigua Guatemala in search of the destitute.
