Bishop Chappel


The Bishop Chapel is one of the few buildings built in the Gothic style in Madrid, constructed in 1520 to house the human remains of Saint Isidro.

A double staircase takes you to the cloister courtyard, in front of a magnificent set of double doors carved in the Renaissance style through which you can access the chapel. Visitors will notice its considerable sizeandheightas well as its Gothic vaults. It also has an extraordinary Plateresque altarpiece, and it took four years to complete the alabaster tomb of the Bishop of Plasencia.

A few nuns of the Dominican order still live and pray here.
