Convent of the Queen of Heaven

The restored 16C convent of the Order of St Clare houses the Diocesan Museum, which exhibits an interesting array of paintings, statues and gold and silver religious artefacts, in particular a remarkable collection of Baroque statues and ivories. At the end of the street, the delightful Casa de los Tagle (18C) is adorned with a huge coat of arms.
