This palace's plateresque doorway is outstanding; a style of architectural decoration that aimed to emulate the finesse of 16th-century silversmiths. Its dome, interior courtyard, chapels, baroque cloisters, and royal salon are all magnificent pieces of architecture. Carlos V and Felipe II both lived in this lovely palace before it was converted into a convent in 1556. Cloistered nuns still live and work in one part of the building. The rest of it, comprising a church, museum and convent, is open to the public.
