“The church has a single nave covered with ribbed vaults, with a starry dome over the presbytery, high choir and side chapels between the buttresses. Therefore, the abundant decoration that adorns the cruise and the main chapel stands out. Consequently, the scheme Decorative is based on orthopic arches and shields of the Catholic Monarchs supported by eagles of San Juan.
The cloister, masterpiece of Enrique Egas, is accessed through a small door. Especially relevant is its composition. Four wings open to a patio through large windows of flamboyant tracery, bordered by a frieze with plant and animal decoration. Also, on the top floor, the beautiful polychrome roofing that repeats, as an ornamental motif, emblems, weapons and initials of Isabel and Fernando, made in the Mudejar style, is remarkable.
In addition, in its main facade the traditional Elizabethan decoration appears, formed by statues, blind arches, pinnacles and balls. It highlights the chains of captive Christians who were released by Fernando el Católico in the taking of Malaga and Baeza. “Excerpt from the Tourism website of Castilla La Mancha.
