描述

A convent hospital for pilgrims

Nowadays it is a luxury Parador de Turismo. Part of the social life of the city is carried on in its rooms.

It was used as a hospital for the pilgrims on the Road to Santiago de Compostela. That is why some of the statues that appear on the Plateresque-style façade of the Convent of San Marcos, and some medallions, represent Jacobean motifs. A good number of the other statues exalt Carlos I's universal monarchy. The convent church has a Latin cross plan. The sacristy, the work of Juan de Badajoz el Mozo, has 3 starred vaults. Also his are the medallions decorating the Renaissance and Baroque cloister, where the floral decoration of Juan de Juni is also outstanding.
