HISTORICAL REVIEW: Popularly called "Convent of the Capuchins". On the noble house of the Marquises of Sessa, from the fifteenth century, this convent of the Capuchin mothers rose two hundred years later. The building conserves, in the cloister, an imposing Mudejar cover and capitals of Roman, Visigothic and Islamic origin. Also, Mudejar are the coffered ceiling and the plasterwork of the refectory. The shields of the family that gave the palace continue to shine on roofs and walls. The convent church, dedicated to the cult of San Rafael, is from the 18th century, with only one nave closed with a barrel vault.
The convent has three main courtyards. The first patio is the compass or anteroom of the convent and is surrounded by four galleries with arches over columns and coffered ceilings. The main cloister, inside, gives access to the noble hall of the old palace, converted into the refectory, of Mudejar construction with coffered ceiling. The main front, topped by the shield of Bishop Marcelino Siuri.
