Convent of Santa Isabel de los Reyes

The current convent, founded in 1477 by María Suárez of Toledo, known as "Sor María la Pobre", was originally two separate palaces, both Mudejar, dating from the XIV Century and the church of San Antolín.

Access to the conventual church, rebuilt during the reign of Carlos I, is through an entrance that dates from the Catholic Monarchs period (1500). It is of a gothic style and is covered by a wooden coffered ceiling. Inside, we find a fine altarpiece from the XVI Century in the nave of the epistle.

The altarpiece dates from 1572, and is in a Plateresque style, showing fine high reliefs and a large number of sculptures. At the base a choir for the nuns was built, featuring a tiled skirting board, a Plateresque altarpiece and ashlars, all from the XVI Century.

In the cloister there are four patios, that of los Naranjos, los Laureles, la Enfermería and la Demandadera.

Restored very recently, in 2006, it has also recently been opened to the public, part of the convent having been converted into a museum.
