Royal Monastery of the Incarnation

Interesting
Founded in 1611 by Margaret of Austria, this convent near the Alcazar (to which it was linked by a passageway), benefited from the generosity of its royal patrons. Hence its fine collection of art works, in particular by the 17C Madrid school and, above all, an impressive collection of relics, of which it has over 1,500, including that of Saint Pantaleon - the blood of this Madrid disciple of Saint Januarius is said to liquefy every July 27.
