Neighborhood: Centro

The Bernadas church is located in the courtyard of what is now a school (Padres Escolapios School) run by a religious order. The school was originally a monastery built by the architect Gil de Hontañón in the 16th century. The whole complex is predominantly late-Gothic in style with Renaissance touches. The church itself has a single nave, a simple transept and a strangely flat apse. The attractive entrance-way to the church displays plateresque features and statues of Our Lady and San Bernardo in an external niche. Ask at the school for permission to visit.
