Sadly access is limited to the cloisters of this convent, although there is also a small museum which can be visited. Lack of English leaflet or text made understanding some of the exhibits difficult. But the cloisters themselves were really atmospheric. Worth visiting just for that.

There is not a great deal to see at las Duenas but the cloister is lovely, full of roses and other flowers and the stone figures supporting the columns are interesting. The two small exhibitions are quite interesting. I felt that it was worth the low entrance fee. As a bonus, you can buy little cakes and biscuits baked by... More

Swing by this small cloister around the corner from St. Esteban. For 2 Euro you can see the inside and relax in the tranquility of the convent. The sisters there also sell "dulces" (cookies), a tradition among Spanish nuns.

During my past trips i had the chance to visit several other similar places, so i was not much impressed from this convent. I think that it is ok if you combine it with the foot tour around the rest of the local attractions.

Great Almond cookies and beautiful cloisters. Very peaceful and wonderful place to visit. I loved it! We went here while the BF sat in a cafe. I got the better deal.

The artefacts and history about the Convent were on the first floor and interesting to see. We didn’t buy cakes from the nuns although we were sorely tempted! However the alternative offered fresh almonds were very tasty and enjoyed by us all.

If you are visiting the San Esteban Convent you should add this one to it. The Convento de la Dueñas is a beautiful convent that houses Dominican Nuns. The name of the convent comes from the wealthy family origin of the first nuns that came to this convent. They belong to an enclosed order, so rarely you may see them.... More

This beautiful convent is right in the centre beside the convent of St Esteban. It has a lovely peaceful cloister which has two storeys and an old Moorish door is on display. The centre of the cloister has a parterre type garden with lovely flowers. There are seats along the sides where you can relax. Although very near a busy... More

The Convento is a lovely place to visit. The two story cloister has 2 Stars in the Michelin Guide. We recommend.

Tiny place, €2, you get a close up look at carved sandstone cloisters, a view of the cathedral in the distance and a carefully-kept little rose garden to sit in. There's a small museum of religious items too, but we ignored it.
