Overview

This convent was founded in 1475 and now it is inhabited by a community of Hieronymite nuns (a monastic order). There is a large museum inside the convent with several different rooms, one of which has a large cloister. It also contains works by those close to Murillo, and others attributed to Berruguete, as is the case with San Jerónimo. The convent also has two altarpieces, one by Alonso Cano with a central statue by Martínez Montañés. Like other convents in Seville, they give great importance to the typical gastronomy of the region, and you can buy their products during normal business hours, which is also when the museum opens.
