All we could do here was view the cloisters, which are very nice but the church is only open for mass. As it is next to San Estaban we hadn't gone out of our way though.

Had the convent sweets - guess what, they taste exactly like Passover macaroons! How odd.

The most impressive part of the Las Dueñas Convent is its cloister, in the Renaissance style. There are two galleries. The lower gallery has arches with carved capitals, while the upper gallery has wonderful lintels supporting the arches.

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.
