Overview

This convent, devoted to the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, was built in 1490. Inside this Gothic building you can find the tomb where the remains of Alonso de Fonseca, the founder, lie. He was the bishop of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia and founder of this convent. If you like ancient music, you're in for a nice surprise here. The convent has choir books dating from the 16th century and baroque organs from the 18th century on display. The choir section in the church itself is enclosed by rails crafted by the artist who produced the ones found at the famous Casa de las Conchas also in Salamanca.
