La IglesiaEste pequeño edificio de un solo cuarto debe su nombre a su cercania al supuesto "convento" de Las Monjas y a la exuberante decoración de su fachada superior a la que se añade, ademas, una cresteria volante. En las grecas de la moldura central se observan grandes áreas recubiertas del estuco original. Mascarones narigudos
constituyen el elemento principal de la fachada, con un personaje sentado - dios o ancestro - integrado sobre la nariz del mascarón central, asi como figuras de los cuatro cargadores de las esquinas del cielo - bacabes o pauahtunes - , arrodillados en paneles laterales. En la cresteria se observa que el constructor tuvo dificultades para acomodar los tres grandes mascarones rescatados de edificios anteriores y que optó por suprimir detalles. Hasta el momento se desconoce la función que cumplía este edificio que, a pesar de lo sobrecargada de su decoración, es uno de los logrados de la arquitectura del estilo Puuc en Chichén Itzá.

One can observe large areas covered with the original stucco on the Grecian frets or the central panel. "Bignosed" masks constitute the main element of the facade, with a seated figure, god or
ancestor integrated upon the nose of the central mask. There also are figures of the four carriers of the corners of the sky, "bacabes" or "pauahtunes" (dwarfs)- kneeling in the side panels. Its appearent that the builder had
certain difficulties in placing the three large masks rescued from earlier buildings on the roofcomb and opted to supress detail. Up to now, it is not known what the function of this building was, and in spite of the overloaded decoration of the building, it is one of the best architectural examples of the Puuc style in Chichén Itzá.
