Overview

This is one of Spain's hidden gems of Renaissance architecture, mainly the work of the prolific Diego de Siloe, who designed the convent with its elegant cloisters and the church as well. Once again it was the Catholic Monarchs who commissioned it and work began in 1504, although it was not completed until after their deaths. Isabel and Fernando's most successful general, Gonzalo Fernandez de Cordoba, better-known as "El Gran Capitan," and his wife, Maria de Manrique, were buried here. The sacristy and chapter house contain valuable works of religious art.
