Overview

This convent belonging to a congregation of Augustinian Nuns was probably built between 1256 and 1259, although local historians cannot give an exact date for its foundation. It is located in the Historic District close to the Town Hall and is one of the Augustinian order's oldest convents in all of Spain. It was hugely wealthy and important towards the end of the 15th century. If you ask and are allowed in, look out for the magnificent 18th century choir stalls.
