The convent was founded in 1490 by Isabel de León. The famous artist Juan de Mesa was responsible for the high altarpiece of the convent's church - you can get to it by crossing a small courtyard. The artist also sculpted the statue of Christ on the crucifix, which you can see here. There are also paintings by pupils of Valdés Leal and other statues by Martínez Montañés. It is right in the old part of the city centre, behind San Marcos Church and very close to San Luis and Santa Marina churches.
