Actopan, Hidalgo, San Nicolás de Tolentino, refectory - The Sixteenth Century: Age of the Convento
“The superb rose-colored and flower-patterned enrichment of the octagonal coffers in this Augustinian refectory, as well as the illusionistic hexagonal painted coffers between, is both extensive and impressive, reiterating the influence of Italy on Fray Andrés de Mata”. (Baird, Joseph Armstrong Jr. The Churches of Mexico 1530-1810, University of California Press, Berkeley and Los Angeles, 1962, p. 84)
