  • The convent and particularly the church are jewels of ancient times. The splendor of its ornementation is outstanding.  more »
  • I kept checking the signage, as I could not believe that this amazing chapel was part of a convent. I don’t think I’ve seen anything that moved me as much as the ornate simplicity outside and inside.....  more »

  • Beautiful place to spend an hour looking at the church. Great architecture and details. Price for adults are €4 and students under 25 are €3. You can either go with a tour guide at a certain scheduled time or on our own.
  • Superb experience! Just to walk around and see the gorgeous patios, the church and the 1st floor views is just amazing! You can also ask for a guided tour, but we prefered to go solo and it was already spectacular! Check it out if you are in Salamanca!
