4. Interior atrium of restaurant, purported to be haunted. Piñatas were created by the Augustins to convert Natives to Catholicism by instilling fear in the devil. The monks wanted children to fear the Devil, who did bad deeds, from God, who would save them. Children “beat the devil” by hitting the seven points on the piñata (representing 7 deadly sins). By successfully beating the devil through the piñata, God would reward the children with sweets. As their patron saint is St. Augustin, boys and girls participated in this activity.
