Monastery of St John of the Kings

Recommended
Commissioned by the Catholic kings, the outside of the monastery is relatively austere. The interior by contrast is very representative of the Isabelline style, mixing the flamboyant Gothic with a few Mudéjar and even Renaissance touches. The cloister sports a noble allure with its flamboyant arcades and original Plateresque upper storey. The church sports ornate sculpted decoration by Juan Guas. Nearby stands a Visigothic palace, as well as a gateway, the Puerta del Cambron.
