The Convent of the Conception is on the left as you cross over Alcántara Bridge from the Plaza de Zocodover. The name comes from the order of nuns who took over the building after the Franciscan monks moved to other premises in 1501. The exterior of the building is a magnificent example of thirteenth century Mudéjar architecture, a style which combines elements of both the Arabic and Christian traditions and was in use from the thirteenth to the sixteenth centuries. The Renaissance style church is very rarely open to the public and was added on later, in the sixteenth century. Mass is not held here and the building is not open to the public.
