Overview

This was one of the first religious buildings that the Catholic Monarchs commissioned after their conquest of the city in 1492. It was once part of the adjoining Santa Cruz Convent that has since been transformed into attractive university halls of residence. Work began early in the 16th century and the completed structure displays a mixture of different architectural styles. The late Gothic style predominates, but you'll also see Renaissance and Roman features. The main altarpiece in the transept is a fine example of locally created baroque art, by Blas Moreno.
