La Iglesia del Convento de la Madre de Dios.



Esta bella iglesia forma parte del recinto del Convento de Madre de Dios. Pertenece a la orden de los dominicos y forma parte de la donación realizada por la Reina Isabel la Católica a estas religiosas.
Está situada en pleno barrio de la judería y en uno de los ejes históricos de entrada a la zona antigua de la ciudad, dentro del barrio de San Bartolomé.
En la Iglesia destacan tres elementos: el altar mayor, el techo de la misma con un artesanado mudéjar y las tumbas en el suelo.
El Convento está ocupado en la actualidad por trece monjas.

It is placed in full neighborhood of the Jewry and in one of the historical way of entry to the ancient zone of the city, inside San Bartolomé's neighborhood.
In the Church three elements stand out: the major altar, the roof of the same one with a Mudejar ceiling and the tombs in the groung.

  1. Nice church! I have seen serveral churches in Spain, there is always a lot to see!

    I did an entry on a church in my previous town, it is Protestant these are alway completely white from the inside and no decoration. This creates a complete different atmosphere in a church but in a way not less 'Holy'.

  2. What a wonderful and richly decorated interior. I'm sure I could spend some time in there admiring it all. It would be great if you could show some details some time.
