Explore the vast walls and see this rectangular temple for yourself as you take photos for your collection. The horseshoe arch window is sure to catch your eye.
Also worth visiting is the convent of San Juan Bautista, founded in 1618 and dedicated to the Virgen del Carmen, and the shrine of Santa Águeda, with its neoclassical style. Inside there used to be an image of the saint that disappeared during the Spanish Civil War, so it’s now been replaced by a replica.
