I have visited this convent on a number of occasions. What most reviews say are correct. Next to the Convent of San Esteban across the road this is a poor second but still worth visiting. Once it is open again I would recommend a tour. It has one of the finest cloistered areas of any small convent I have seen.

Perfect end of the day visit.
The monastery is extremely peaceful - like an oasis in the hectic city life.
The light was ideal to admire the cloister and the garden.
After the visit bought some sweets from the nuns: delicious!

This hidden gem makes for an interesting visit. While you are walking around and reading some of its history, it's normal to see some of the nuns walking around, and if you are lucky, you will be able to buy some fresh bread made in the grounds.

If you are visiting the San Esteban Convent you should add this one to it. The Convento de la Dueñas is a beautiful convent that houses Dominican Nuns. The name of the convent comes from the wealthy family origin of the first nuns that came to this convent. They belong to an enclosed order, so rarely you may see them. They have a life of pray to God and help each other with different tasks. They also have a small store where they sell home made pastries.
I saw in the premises a small museum which contains religious items.
The cloister is a heaven of peace and architectural beauty.
There is an entrance fee of 2 euros

I have seen many Convents and Monasteries, particularly in Spain and Portugal and it is difficult not to admire and appreciate the architecture and all that they offer. However, this one is much smaller and intimate, quite absorbing and very restful. My wife and I were felt very differently here than any others we had been to, it is a pity that there is not more to appreciate as it appears much of it is still occupied.

The Rough Guide rightly says this is the most beautulful set of cloisters in the city. Smaller than some others but the irregular double-tiered pentangle is in wonderful condition. The Moorish touches just add to the whole, over which looms the cuopla of the Cathedral. And on a hot, June morning there was no-one there!

The nuns in this convent are cloistered and earn a living by making cookies. They make the BEST cookies. My favorites are the polvorones and the amarguillos (made from almonds). Upon entering the courtyard, follow the sidewalk to the bldg and take the door on the right. It doesn't cost anything to go in and get cookies, you only have to pay if you continue on to see the museum.

We nearly missed it, they were just closing. A nun let us in and ushered us in to the bake shop. The cookies are very good and the courtyard was lovely. But, we did not get to see the big courtyard because they closed.

The artefacts and history about the Convent were on the first floor and interesting to see. We didn’t buy cakes from the nuns although we were sorely tempted! However the alternative offered fresh almonds were very tasty and enjoyed by us all.

The Convento is a lovely place to visit. The two story cloister has 2 Stars in the Michelin Guide. We recommend.
