Basilica San Juan de Dios

The Monasterio de San Jeronimo is a huge facility a little bit off the main town centre. However, it is still well worth a visit as its serene courtyards and large spaces are full of atmosphere and character. It was the first monaserty to be built after the Christian re-conquest.

While most of the rooms and the courtyard were simply decorated, the chapel was completely the opposite. Intricate carvings and paintings in all sorts of colours graced the interiors from floor to ceiling.

The neighbouring streets also have some interesting monumental architecture, making the stroll back towards the Cathedral ever more pleasant.

Iglesia de los Santos Justo y Pastor

A neighbourhood spice and tea stand captivated my attention. As it was next to the Cathedral, I guessed the clientele was tourists, not locals.
