  • Original architectural set consisting of the Hospital de la Anunciación (from 1872 Dominican convent) and the chapel of Mosén Rubí, whose architecture reflects the coexistence of the late Gothic and Renaissance. The apse, work of Juan campero, late-Gothic polygonal plant, with the reinforced with buttresses and corners decorated with coats of arms and the typical Pearly Ávila on the edges. Renaissance is the ship, as well as the cover, arched with padded dovelaje, attributed to Pedro de Tolosa and Pedro de el Valle. Greek cross plan, the main Chapel is covered with ribbed Vault - late Gothic-, and the vaulted nave semiplana, separated from the chancel by Renaissance arches. All construction is executed in granite Ashlar masonry berroqueno, except the ribbed vault, that runs on "Cali" veined granite. Occupying a central position is located the Cenotaph of the founders, Don Andrés Vázquez Dávila and Dona María Herrera. Also are the graves of Adolfo Suárez and his spouse Amparo Illana. Declared of Cultural interest in 1983.

  • Although not noted in the great monuments of Avila, it should miss it. It is of a beautiful building, surrounded of a green garden. A time inside, a religious very friendly gives a small talk on the details and features of the Chapel and its history. Hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 16:00 to 18:00 and Sundays and holidays from 11:00 to 13:00, Mondays closed. Admission is free, although we leave a small donation.
