Monastery of Bidaurreta

Juan López de Lazarraga, accountant of the Catholic King and Queen, and his wife Juana de Ganboa wanted the right place for their tombs so they ordered to construct this monastery in the beginning of the 16th century.


The building displays three different artistic styles as follows: Gothic, Mudejar and Renaissance, the latter being the prevailing one. Likewise, the two altarpieces are worth to mention. One of them, depicting the Virgin's coronation, is Baroque and built in non-polychromatic wood. The other is Plateresque, one of the first Renaissance altarpieces in the territory.


Cloistered Franciscan nuns of the Order of Saint Claire inhabit the convent.
