Convent of St Joseph

The façade of this convent is an interesting example of local baroque art. This very original building is made up of a full arch resting on plinths and décor based on persons that form the consoles supporting a corniche decorated with delicate images of plants and grotesque masks. Inside, there is an interesting collection of antique paintings.
