The monastery was built after the Catholic Kings gave to the order of Saint Jerome a property consisting of a House, a windmill and a vegetable garden that belonged to King Muslims driven out of the city. The convent was erected after the donation, the monastery was plundered by the French who took away precious decorations. The exterior gives the idea of a fortress than a monastery under the massive walls that surround it. The monastery, in my opinion, should be only visited for the Church that hosts. In fact, some of the rooms on the ground floor you can visit (including refectory) somewhat anonymous and somewhat empty of furnishings. The upper floor you could not visit when we were there in early September. Beautiful cloister. Inside the church there is a large altarpiece with statues and paintings of Saints: is the most interesting part of the Church along with ceilings, in my opinion.show original
