Cultural Heritage

The convent of the Agustinos Descalzos consisted of the church and a residence. It was built in the 16th century and operated up to the 19th century's "desamortización" (sale and secularization of church owned properties).


Later on, it was used as a hospital and old people's home. The church, in Renaissance style, is remarkable because of its rectangular and vertical façade with a semi-circular arched portico.  It has large windows and a carved figure of San Agustín occupies the facade's centre.


The building is Baroque. It has an inner courtyard and on its facade, by the access door, stands out a coat of arms in the centre and the large abbatial balcony with its forged parapet.


Nowadays, the church building hosts a culture centre and the convent is an old people's home.
