Portal de las Monjas

The Portal de las Monjas is an old walled doorway attached to the
convent of the Augustinian Nuns
. It has an attached tower of cylindrical form in whose lower part is housed the sacristy of the convent church. The doorway has a semicircular arch on the exterior and a pointed arch on the interior. In its upper part, and on the intramural side, it has three floors of closed gallery with mud and plaster lattices that give it a characteristic appearance, an element that, due to its originality, has become the most representative space of the locality. Under the lattices and over the arch there is an open chapel with a linteled opening dedicated to Saint Thomas. On the next floor, the Superior of the convent had a privileged view of the main street, since it was accessed from her cell.
