    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.

    This convent was built in the beginning of the XVI century. This Gothic building has undrgone some changes throughout the centuries it exists. In the 18th century the entrance doors were replaced by Baroque ones. The statue of the founder of the convent archbishop Alonso de Fonseca can be seen inside.

    The Ursuline Convent was founded in 1512 by the Archbishop Alonso de Fonseca. This church, built in late gothic style church, has a polygonal apse that is more a tower. It houses the tomb of its founder, whose sarcophagus, sculpted in white marble, is considered to be one of the of the best works of the renaissance period.
