Convent of las Agustinas Calzadas

Also known as the "Convento de Las Gaitanas", it dates from the XV Century, although its interior has undergone major restoration.

The only nave is divided into four parts and covered by a semicircular vault with a high choir at its base. The main chapel is outstanding, covered by an impressive pilgrims badge, protected by the enormous canvas by Francisco Rizzi, representing the Immaculate Conception, the name of the church.

This is a clear example of the disappearance of the costly sculptured altarpieces and the simplification of its structure, centred on a painting of large dimensions. The building is surrounded by buildings unconnected to the convent, its facade being untouched since the XVIII Century.

Outside there is a tall building that has several adjacent buildings and which hold no relation to the convent.
