  • You cannot tell it from the outside. It looked like a normal monastery. But when you stepped into the chapel, wow! Its can easily be the most beautiful chapel I have seen in Spain. Small, but gorgeous.
  • When u enter it does not look great but when u see the main vault u r mesmerised by the detailed paintings. Worth a quick visit. There is parking on the street as well.
  • An underrated monastery in the heart of the city. Very few visitors come here and the place is often very quiet and empty. There's a nice cloister with lemon/orange trees inside, and the rooms are pretty bare since it's a monastery. However, the church inside is absolutely breathtaking. The entrance price might seem a little steep for a small place (4€) but the church makes it worth it.
  • Resilience, not full of gold but nicely crafted
  • Looks better in the inside.
