Ex-Convento de San Gabriel

Ex-Convento de San Gabriel Review

This impressive, huge former convent includes a trio of churches. The most unusual is the Moorish-style Capilla Real, with 49 domes. Construction began in the 1540s, and the building was originally open on one side to facilitate the conversion of huge masses of people. Fewer than 20 Franciscan monks still live in one part of the premises, so be respectful of their privacy.
