Convento de las Duenas, Salamanca

4.6
Enter a tranquil courtyard and view pentagonal cloisters with intricately carved stone pillars at Convento de las Duenas. Stroll through the peaceful rose garden, or explore the rooms of religious artwork. Learn about Sister Teresa Chikaba, a West African woman who lived as a slave in Madrid for a decade before being allowed to join the convent in the mid 17th century. Try the pastries sold by the sisters--they're almost more famous than the cloisters.

  • Before arriving at the Cathedral of St. Stephen of the Dominicans we find this convent of cloistered nuns. A very nice courtyard, where on the ground I have seen figures made in part with lamb vertebrae. Two euros a ticket

  • Absolutely beautiful. Try to get in early enough to avoid crowds to appreciate its real serenity. Have to wonder what nuns made of all the writhing forms represented by stone carvings.
  • Breathtaking sculptures in the first floor arcades of the beautifully gardened claustro, with great views to the catedral n clerecia. A must!
