The Monastery Of The Santa Faz

Img 1: THE MONASTERY OF THE SANTA FAZ

The main door of this Clarist convent is Baroque in style, and in the interior is a small, sumptuous room in which is kept the relic known as the Santa Faz; it contains one of the folds that tradition says belonged to the linen with which Veronica wiped the face of Jesus on the road to Calvary, and which was brought from the Vatican towards the end of XV century. One of the defence towers still remains from the original fortifications.
