Overview

This convent was founded in 1447 and dedicated to Isabel of Hungary, patron saint of the Catholic Queen Isabel I and to whom the latter felt great devotion. Queen Isabel herself ceded this building, formerly the palace of the Casarrubios y Arroyomolinos family, to the Franciscan religious order. In addition, in the choir you'll find the tomb of Isabel and Ferdinand's daughter, Isabel, Queen of Portugal. The Arabic wooden ceiling of the main chapel and the Mudéjar-style doors and the marble pillar in the cloister rooms are worth visiting, though you may do so only with the Sisters' permission. The convent is normally closed to the public. Mass is celebrated in the church at 7p M-Su.
