Neighborhood: Carmelitas
Overview

In this quiet street in the old part of the city, where there are lots of monuments, you will find this convent belonging to the Madres Adoratrices (Adoring Mothers) order of nuns. The convent was restored several times during the 16th and 18th centuries, and is very different from the original building. The main chapel in the church is decorated with a magnificent 16th-century altarpiece and a fine Mudéjar stuccoed ceiling. In 1742 a side chapel was built and outside, behind the apse, a pretty baroque window was fitted. Admission: free
