Convento de las Ursulas, Salamanca
The convent of the Ursulines was founded by archbishop Fonseca in 1512. Its most interesting feature is the Gothic apsis you see here. Inside there is a baroque retable.
In front of the apsis stands the statue of Fray Luís de Granada, a theologian, writer and preacher who lived in the 16th century (third pic).
The Convent of the Ursulines was founded in 1512. The high Gothic church is okay, but the most interesting thing about visiting is seeing the white marble sarcophagus of teh Archbishop Alonso de Fonseca I. I had never heard of the guy before visiting the church, but the tomb created by Diego de Siloe which was made in the 16th century is amazing.
