Convent of Santa Isabel de los Ángeles

Convento de Santa Isabel de los Ángeles

Convento de Santa Isabel de los Ángeles This convent was initially founded in the 15th century by Lady María de Villaseca, and has an interesting 17th century façade featuring the coat of arms of the founding family.   From the small, tidy entrance courtyard the visitor can see the austere façade of the church and the sacristy, built in stone with curved, split pediments. The church is rectangular with a single nave, and preserves interesting examples of Cordoban Mannerism, as well as paintings and sculptures in wood and stone from the 17th and 18th centuries. The people of Cordoba have a special devotion to the image of San Pancracio, which they visit every Wednesday of the year to ask the saint for help in finding a job, either for themselves or for someone they know.
