Convent Church of la Encarnación (the Incarnation)

This church, which belongs to the Cistercian order, is very near the Mosque. Despite being originally Medieval, the Renaissance and Baroque reforms have wiped out any traces of the former building. A Renaissance façade leads to the magnificent church, which inside has a single nave and Baroque style vaulting. The polychromatic stucco work produces a stunning combination of blue, white and gold, and the main altarpiece, in gold and green, with spiralling columns and pilasters, is equally attractive.
