The monastery is still in use, so one can only visit the courtyard and a 1 room little museum displaying some of the monastery treasures, which are not really particularly worth seeing. However, the 2 courtyards are worth seeing, the first is a sort buffer...More

Absolutely precious for a peaceful half an hour. The architecture of the central patio is exquisite, and it offers great views of the cathedral and the church of Saint Stephen. It is a living cloister for nuns of the Dominican Order and one can buy...More

Close to the San Esteban Convent, this is a small treasure that deserves more visitors. Very relaxing visit.

Definitely worth a visit, at least to gaze at the masonry and design of the impressive front gate and entrance to this venerable university. One can also enter for a fee. The lecture halls are beautiful as is the courtyard. But, I think one can...More

We nearly missed it, they were just closing. A nun let us in and ushered us in to the bake shop. The cookies are very good and the courtyard was lovely. But, we did not get to see the big courtyard because they closed.

The cloisters are lovely - so peaceful. The nun selling the little cakes was welcoming and a great saleslady!! Lovely just to sit in the sun and recharge your batteries. It would have been most helpful if there had been a leaflet in English but...More

This quaint convento is another place one has to see. It is impeccable and the detailing of the columns is impressive. Check out each column, they are all different and some are very strange. Also, the flooring is rather unusual.
