Overview

An architectural jewel of the Spanish Gothic style whose outstanding features are the cloisters and the arched galleries. The ground floor houses numerous sculptures along with some fine carved stone reliefs depicting images of animals and vegetation. The upper story has a richly decorated mudejar-style ceiling. The church's interior is a riot of decor containing delicate arches, coats-of-arms, huge eagles and a star-shaped dome. You'll find it by Puerta del Cambron gate. It was commissioned by the Catholic Monarchs to commemorate Spanish victory over King Alfonso of Portugal in 1476.
