Conservation of the Mid-18th-Century Santa Teresa Convent in Cochabamba, Phase 2

This project, which completes conservation work begun under previous Ambassadors Fund grants, directly supports the U.S. embassy’s efforts to promote sustainable economic development and the treaty between Bolivia and the United States concerning the looting and illicit trafficking of Bolivian cultural property.

Built in 1760 for the Carmelite Order, and rebuilt in 1790 after an earthquake, Santa Teresa Convent is one of Cochabamba’s most important landmarks. [Photo credit: Project organizer]
