Is has also a pool in the center. The church, in Moorish style is very reformed after the fire it suffered in 1678. It hosts interesting baroque decoration. Of great interest is the Renaissance façade with santa sculpture and family crests. The nuns of the convent make sweets and pastries made of excellent quality, you may purchase through the lathe.
