Neighborhood: Barrio Antiguo
Overview

This quiet convent, in an area with lots of monuments, is joined to Purísima Church, although it has no connection with the church's Italian decor. Manuel Fonseco y Zúñiga, Count of Monterrey, had the convent built for his daughter, Inés de Zúñiga, in the 16th century. Its sober appearance is very well suited to the enclosed Augustine order of nuns. Inside there is an important collection of pictures, gold and silver work, sculptures and statues, although some of these were pillaged. Admission: free
