Monasterio de la Encarnacion Reviews

Beautiful but tickets limited so but if a bun fight at 4pm to get one. Free if you show uk identification, otherwise €6. Slightly aggressive woman on the door but her assistant very pleasant. Tour... more »
It's a nice old convent with precious royal collections. One of its great attraction is the blood of St. Pantaleon's blood which is said to liquefy on July 27, his feast day.
I haven't had the chance to be inside the building but its history and architecture was really nice to discover. Looking forward to go in some day.
