Overview

The outstanding sights in this monastery are the choir area, the main cloister, the bronze and marble sepulcher, the paintings of the Bourbon Royal family, and the chapel's frescoes. However, it is best known for the miracle that happens here every July 28, when the congealed blood of Saint Pantaleon that is kept in a small container miraculously becomes liquid. The building is a fine example of post-Herrera baroque architecture (Herrera was also responsible for El Escorial Monastery).
