The Museo de las Descalzas has very good religious art which one is surprised to find in this town.

I enjoyed seeing the sculptures of the masters Pedro de Mena, Francisco Salzillo, and la Roldana,

The Descalzas Museum is located in the Convent of the Barefoot Carmelites. The convent dates to 1632 and its church was finished in 1734. One can find plenty of religious art from the 16th to the 18th century. Important painters include Luca Giordano, Antonio Mohedano, Antonio de Torres and Bocanegra. The sculptures were created by the masters Pedro de Mena, Francisco Salzillo, La Roldana, and Antonio del Castillo. Other exhibits are silverware used in religious ceremonies.
