The street side wall of Bellas Artes is a continuation of the yellow wall of the La Concepcion and was originally a convent for the church. Now it is an art school. If I had to pick two favorite places in San Miguel, the "stair" streets would be one and Bellas Artes would be another. It is the classic colonial design with a courtyard in the center.
The arched walkways surround the courtyard on all four sides with a second story.
The doorways are all of this unassuming design.
Two stairways lead to the upper level.
A wooden craving of Christ on the Cross hangs in one stairwell.
The upper level has a new exhibit since I took these pictures, maybe I will get a chance to see it tomorrow before we leave.
The dome of neighboring La Concepcion and the courtyard of Bellas Artes.
A double set of stairs leading down with mural of spinners.
There is also a bookstore and a cafe in the Bellas Artes. It's favorite stop for pizza!
