Description

This Dominican convent was founded by Doña Violante, wife of King Alfonso X. It has a big Gothic style facade work of Simón de Colonia. In one of its chapels the Cristo Yacente by Gregorio Fernández can be found. It was reconstructed in Hispanic/Flemish style by order of Cardinal Torquemada in the XV century. Thereafter, there were reforms by the Duke of Lerma. Plateresque style adornments were added to the upper portion of the main front.
