Sense the centuries of history
Convent and chapel worth of admiration.
Convent of the Capuchinos
It is a beautiful place of which we can highlight the monumental remains of the Convent of the Franciscans and the current chapel of the Venarable Orden Tercera. This convent, also called Real, was one of the oldest and most important of Spain. It was founded in 1231 by disciples of the Saint of Assisi. Ten years later, the construction of the church began, which retains the main chapel and one side with ashlars, lancet windows, eaves with heads of men and animals... In the chapel are burial holes with pointed arches, remaining a stony altarpiece of XVIII century.
It is a convent that once had a Renaissance cloister, of which some capitals are preserved.
