Saint Francesc Convent


This gothic convent marks the access into the castle. Besides other nearby historic buildings it will become a National Parador Hotel. The church of the convent, from the 14th century, shows the beauty and the simplicity of the original gothic style, as well as the remains of the cloister. In the Chapter House it is kept one of the oldest pieces of macabre Spanish art, the Dance of the Death, pictures from the 15th century which link the aristocracy, the clergy and the low people around the death.

Where is your treasure, there is your heart... (Danza de la Muerte,15th century)
