Churches and Chapels
Church of Santiago de la Puebla
Gothic, with a transition west front and a plateresque one. The church has three naves, with a classical curved rib structure and late-Gothic modillions in the keystones. The chancel contains the remains of a painted starry sky and some figures from an old altarpiece painted in tempera. The images and board paintings were brought in from various nearby hermitages.
Capilla de la Concepción: Contains a Renaissance altarpiece attributed to Diego de Siloé, although some of the sculptures might be by Berruguete. In the centre stands the sepulchre of the founders, Toribio, the Advisor of the Catholic Monarchs, and his wife, as indicated by the inscription.
The attention of the visitor is drawn to the crocodile hanging at the church entrance, which was brought to the palace by the village lord and slain by the neighbours after it had killed a little girl. .
