This convent was initially founded in the 15th century by Lady Maria de Villaseca, and has an interesting 17th century facade featuring the coat of arms of the founding family. From the small, tidy entrance courtyard the visitor can see the austere facade of the church and the sacristy, built in stone with curved, split pediments. The church is rectangular with a single nave, and preserves interesting examples of Cordoban Mannerism, as well as paintings and sculptures in wood and stone from the 17th and 18th centuries.
