Sense the centuries of history
A tour of the architecture of centuries ago.
Convent of San Francisco
It is a convent already founded in the year 1290, and its church was extended and rebuilt between the XIV and XVI centuries, as well as the cloister. Its church is currently being restored to be used as auditorium.
From its oldest period, in the XIII century, the remains of a circular apse built with masonry are still in its head. The church has a single nave, divided by four sections separated by pointed arches, which rest on corbels. A series of funerary chapels of the XIV century and paintings attributed to Sanson Florentino of the half of XV century are kept. There are two chapels in the left side which are worthy to be seen for the architecture that represent.
