Neighborhood: Centro

This convent belonging to the Franciscan order is located on the way down one of the city's most emblematic street-Calle de la Compañía. The famous Spanish writer, philospher and academic, Miguel de Unamuno, used to walk down here most days as do many students still. The building's austere façade is lightened by an attractive vaulted niche holding an image of Our Lady. It's worth looking in the church that forms part of the convent to see the door flanked by elegant pilasters with Ionic capitals. The convent is not open to the public.
