The Convent of St. Joseph and St. Anne was founded by St. Teresa of Jesus at the end of the 16th century. It combines decorative and structural elements with exquisite attention to detail.
It is also known as the Convent of the Discalced Carmelites, as that reformed branch of the Carmelite Order was established there, following the tradition of St. Teresa of Jesus, so that members could lead lives of prayer, meditation and austerity, dedicating themselves to divine contemplation.
The interior of the convent cannot be visited, as it is cloistered, but it stands out for having different sculptures of St. Teresa of Jesus and a neo-Gothic altarpiece.
From the outside, its rather sober Classicist-style cover stands out.
