Trivia: I don't think this little fact is anywhere online (EDIT: I confirmed it from this article here in Spanish), but towards the end of the film where they show the nuns walking through their convent and Carlos and his men trying to break into said convent, the scene that they used for this location was once called the "Haciendo Molino de las Flores" (now called the "Parque Nacional Molino de Flores") in Texcoco, Mexico. The only reason I noticed was because I went there 6 years ago with relatives and took both photos and video of that particular location. We explored the entire location and I distinctly remember the "bridge" to the church and the staircase through the main entrance.
