Convento de Santo Domingo

Explore a 13th-Century Convent
Head to Plaza Tetuán and tour the Convento de Santo Domingo, where detail-oriented visitors will find examples of Gothic, neoclassical and renaissance architecture. Snap shots of fluted columns ending in intricate stone arches in the main cloister. In the Aula Capitular and La Capilla de los Reyes, admire ceilings criss-crossed by a web of dramatically curving buttresses. Reservations must be made ahead of time by phone at (34) 961-963-038, and the convent is not always open to the public for tours, as the building is currently used by military.
