Convent of Sant Francesc

Interesting
This former Franciscan convent, now the regional hospital as well as the Lapidary Museum, stands on the lefthand side of Rambla de Sant Francesc. In the Gothic cloister (14C), two Rococo-style fountains depict St Francis's Sermon to the Birds and St Anthony's Sermon to the Fishes; the diversity of the boats sailing in the sea cannot fail to impress.
