  • Arquitectura espectacular, tanto a igreja quanto os claustros. Azulejaria e talha dourada de fazer sonhar. Mas... se querem turismo, não custa nada traduzir para outras línguas e pedir às funcionárias que sorriam. Achei horrível o estado de 'conservação' das pinturas. Então têm quadros do Ribera todos rotos?
  • This museum center piece is the famous story about the nun that wrote love letters to an officer.
  • Excellent exposition regarding the "Letters from a Portuguese", and the rest is also very nice
  • Worth the visit, the Entrance is free on Sundays.
