Overview

This quiet 13th-century convent, located very near Gran Vía, was the residence of the Franciscan order of nuns, which was rebuilt in the 16th and 17th centuries after a fire. When the building was restored, marvellous 14th-century murals were discovered under whitewashed walls. This restoration won the Europa Nostra prize, presented by Queen Sofía of Spain. Be sure to have a look at Joaquín Churriguera's magnificent main altar.
