Convent of Santa Isabel.

The second convent of Franciscan nuns was founded in Toledo in 1477, under the protection of Santa Isabel de Hungría, one of the most relevant personalities of the Order of Saint Francis of Assisi. Therefore, the new monastery was a work of a lady of Toledo, María Suárez de Toledo, who was a relative of the Catholic Monarchs, daughter of Pedro Suárez and Juana de Guzmán, family of Pinto, who was know as Sister Mary the Poor for her extreme austerity in life.

The aid provided by the Catholic Monarchs fot the creation of the new monastery was vital, since Fernando handed over the ownership rights of the main dwellings of Toledo, as stated in the ceremony of San Antolín, inherited by his mother Juan Enriquez. This was how the new monastery was founded and it can be still foun where it was erected. The medieval palace works conserved in the cloister have a Mudejar style, with many carvings in the plaster relief and wooden frameworks. We can highligt those next to the cloister of Los Naranjos. Los Laureles and the Infirmary Patio.
