This religious complex was built by the Dominican Order in the 16th century. The interior was decorated with frescoes painted with cochineal dye, once world famous, extracted from small insects that live on local cacti. And of course the famous church organ… one of the few existing 16th century organs in Mexico. Tlacochahuaya Wiki
