Convent Church of El Santo Ángel

Iglesia Conventual del Santo Ángel

The Convent Church of El Santo Ángel, known more commonly by the name of Capuchinos, is situated in the popular Plaza de Capuchinos, where a lone crucifix starkly surrounded by old lamps stands in the square. The blank white walls all around confer an air of austerity throughout the building. The main entrance, just like the 17th century church, is a sober affair. The main altar, in contrast, is full of richly-coloured paintings with a small temple housing the image of the patron saint, which dates from the early 20th century. There are several side chapels, of which the most attractive are those of the Divina Pastora (the Divine Shepherdess) and San Francisco.
