Convento de las Dueñas

Recommended
The convent was founded in 1419 to accommodate the nuns of the Dominican order. Renaissance in style, the cloister, remodelled in the 16C, is pentagonal in shape and arranged on two levels. The capitals, particularly those on the second level, feature striking high-reliefs depicting fantastical creatures and frightening devils, in contrast to the medallions bearing the majestic heads of old men and graceful feminine faces on the lower level.
