San Jerónimo Monastery (Monasterio de San Jerónimo)

The great Catholic monarchs Ferdinand and Isabel founded the Monasterio de San Jerónimo in the 16th century. They tried situating it in Santa Fe, but the monks were so tortured by mosquitoes that they had to move them to the present site.

Built by Diego de Siloé, this monastery is hardly austere: it’s a heavily ornamented riot of gilding, carving and celestially-hued painting.

Practical Info

Within the monastery, you’ll find a delightful cloistered walk set around an inner courtyard full of orange trees—a sweet-scented treat in spring. Near the bottom of the altar you’ll find the tombstone of El Gran Capitán, Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, the head of Ferdinand and Isabel’s army. There are also some 500 memorial stones for the monks that spent their lives here.
