  • One of the most representative buildings of the time of the Catholic Monarchs. It is worth noting its facade and its patio are important for its refined ornamentation, and the elegant proportions it has. His teaching of the theology of dominican friars was the seed of the most distinguished preachers of the Renaissance era.

  • A very interesting museum with wooden statues from the 15th to the 18th century. The patio and the exterior facade are also beautiful

  • The place is spectacular. A pity the staff, the deal left a lot to be desired, at 7 we were charged and let in and at and 10 they started telling us to see everything quickly because they closed at and a half. And twenty we got kicked out, mind-blowing.
