Convento de San Esteban

Recommended
The first stone was laid here on 29 June 1524. The pinnacles on the side buttresses are Gothic, while the imposing façade is a remarkable example of the Plateresque style. The tour starts in the Kings' cloisters, decorated with medallions in which the kings of Israel are represented. The church, which is striking for its sense of space, contains a large altarpiece, a masterpiece by José Churriguera.
