Inside, you will see paintings by Murillo and Valdes Leal covering the walls, as well as arches and domes decorated in Baroque style and extensive plasterwork.

  • Mystic place with clay figures. It really is an old building that you can observe as a work of Baroque art. There is a black cat inside...
  • The 17th century church is located on the territory of the Hospital of Mercy. It's a beautiful baroque specimen. He is famous for the carved figures of the master Diego Roldan and paintings on religious themes by V. E. Murillo and V. Leal. The Mercy Hospital was opened by Miguel de Magnar, one of Don Juan's prototypes. Prior to his death, Miguel de Magnara was the elder brother of the monastery and the church under him. His ashes lie in the church in a small crypt. Interestingly, the hospital, a kind of nursing home, continue to live on full support of older men.
