  • Visita súper recomendable. El Monasterio es espectacular. El guía (italiano) de 10. No pudimos acceder al Coro por ser domingo, pero aprovechamos la hora igualmente. Ya estoy buscando fechas para el Monasterio de la Encarnación.
  • Es una joya escondida en un edificio austero en el corazón de Madrid. La escalera con pinturas murales del s.xvl, un retablo con pinturas en los espejos , los retratos de los Austrias y los impresionantes tapices de Rubens.
