The church is located on the hill on the other river’s bank. It’s worth a detour for the panoramic view (for free); you should also enter the church (two euros per person) to admire the Saint Isabel’s silver tomb. Enjoy!

The Santa Clara Monastery was covered in sacking and scaffolding as there are huge renovations going on. Disappointing but understandable.
