Overview

This convent with plateresque entrance, originally a Mudejar palace, was founded by Juana Rodriguez de Maldonado in 1533 and now belongs to Dominican nuns. It's located at the end of the Gran Via. Inside there is a very attractive courtyard, a jewel of Spanish Renaissance architecture, with its pentagonal shape. In the Renaissance cloister there are some very beautiful Moorish doors. You really ought to try the delicious amarguillos and other kinds of sweets made by the nuns.
