17th c. Baroque-neoclassical

The Convent of the Mercedarian Mothers is located outside the historical quarter, in the street Fonte de Santo Antonio, facing the Gate of Mazarelos, which is the only remaining one of the old city wall. It was founded in 1671 by Archbishop Antonio Girón, whose mortal remains repose in its Church. The most outstanding feature of its neoclassical façade, bordered by Corinthian pillars, is a relief of the Annunciation by the baroque sculptor Mateo de Prado.
