Churches and Chapels
Church of Sancti Spiritus
The only remaining part of the Sancti Spiritus convent, founded in the late 12th century. In the 13th century, it was ceded to the order of Santiago, whose abbot in turn gave it to the nuns of the aforementioned order, who were here until the 18th century. The church underwent major reforms in the 16th century.
On the outside, the church is mostly Renaissance and Plateresque. The door has a pointed arch and two medallions located in the arch joints contain the busts of a man and a woman, probably Don Martín Alonso, the son of Alfonso IX, and his wife Doña María Meléndez de Portugal. Their coats of arms are on the sides of the second section of the front and their relics lie in two sepulchres inside the church
