Neighborhood: Carmelitas

When you are looking for peaceful contemplation, and find yourself near Casa de Santa Teresa, you will find this Franciscan convent which is worth a visit to see the lovely plateresque entrance to the church. It's a Mudéjar Renaissance style entrance, of the kind which was used for the entrances to churches in the Middle Ages, where you can admire the medallions (decorative relief mouldings) of martyrs and the anagram of Mary with vegetable motifs. Inside, the main altar and the side altars are in plain pine, and the 16th century statue of the Virgen de la Leche is worth a look. Admission: free. Groups by prior arrangement.
