The old or upper Carmen, also known as the Carmen of St. Joseph, was established in 1653 in the house that had belonged to Santa Mariana de Jesus, fulfilling the prophecy made by the Virgin of Quito. The Jesuit brother Marcos Guerra drew up the plans and was responsible for the construction of the church and the monastery. The main facade of the church looks out over the atrium.
