The cloister is so peaceful and well preserved. You can look up and see the storks nesting all over the elaborate rooftops. The church has the most ornate, golden altarpiece I have ever seen. Not to be missed.

There is some much to see in the detail that you need to allow twice as much time and not rush as you will miss the best bits

Only 3.5 euros to view the convent. Unfortunately there are no English speaking tours and all the displays are in Spanish. The chapel is magnificent and there is also a museum on the second floor which is included in the admission price.
