Its plateresque façade is simply magnificent, resembling a richly decorated altar piece. The most outstanding of its stone-carved reliefs features the image of San Esteban himself by Ceroni. Through the Renaissance-style gateway you come to the Gothic-style royal cloisters and inside the church you'll find a splendid baroque altar piece by José de Churriguera. Famous characters from history have spent time here, including Domingo de Soto, Francisco de Vitoria and Christopher Columbus. Mass: Su 9a, 11a, noon, 1p, & 8p.
