Overview

In this convent you can see artistic elements belonging to the different stages of the city's history, from the Arab period to the purest 17th century baroque style. The church, built in the 15th century, contains features of Gothic and Mudéjar art. There is a Mudéjar style coffered ceiling, although the head of the church has a ribbed vault, similar in style to Santa Marina Church, but with a single nave.There is some splendid tile work, as well as a beautiful altarpiece that could have been made using drawings by Martínez Montañés, one of the masters of baroque art in Seville. Next to the church is the Torre de Don Fadrique, a tower that houses the Archaeological Museum.
