Convent Las Capuchinas Antigua, Guatemala
     These wooden bars are not likely the originals, but are at least true to them. Security was an issue at the convent, since the "inmates" were exiles with aristocratic backgrounds who could have brought valuable personal affects with them. The bars probably did little good against flies and mosquitos!
