Convent of the Concepcion

The present church was built in the XVI Century on the remains of another from the XIII-XV Century, of which the Mudejar tower, the Santa Catalina chapel and the San Jerónimo chapel still remain, covered with an octagonal roof, both separate from the church.

The current entrance patio was a nave of that temple. The church has one nave in six parts, closed with a polygonal gothic-Mudejar apse and five lateral chapels.

There are two choirs, a high one at the base and another that leads to the presbytery from the gospel wall. The main altar is the work of Juan Bautista Monegro. The oldest part of the convent is the cloister, which is from the XIII Century, where there is an interesting collection of plaster mouldings, headstones and wall paintings.

In the chapel adjacent to the presbytery are the remains of Saint Beatriz de Silva, founder of the order.
