Sense the centuries of history
Monastery of Santa Clara Gordillas
It was founded in 1313 by Sancho Sánchez de Velasco and his wife, Sancha García de Carrillo. Apart from the monastic rooms, it also has an abbatial church with one single nave divided in three parts, with a rectangular end room. Built during the 15th century, it is of late Gothic style.
Several architectural styles can be appreciated in the monastery: Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. The Capilla de la Concepción is to be noted, with its vestry; the mausoleum of Don Iñigo Fernández de Velasco and his wife, Dª Mª Tovar; the choir with its masonry work (16th century).
