The convent is a special place, full of calm and intimacy. A jewel of Baroque architecture which you will enjoy especially if it is a hot day. You can buy the sweets made by the nuns in artesanal way. A heavenly taste!!

The convent was surprisingly nice to visit. A lot more to it than one would expect. A variety of artifacts throughout the church and a lovely courtyard entry. It is a peaceful place to sit for a few moments and reflect on life.

The convent is beautiful with many religious artefacts. This is more than an attraction. Go and see if you are in search of calm peacefulness and support the work of these lovely women - buy some cakes

A small church inside the convent, a bit like a big chapel. Well worth a visit. Look at the pictures on the walls and the altar is something to behold. It is a convent and therefore not always open.

A place of such peace and tranquility. The church has fantastic carvings and is far more grand than one would ever imagine.
