Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Old Monastery Hospice of El Tardón


This former infirmary hospice of the Basilian monks has been converted into a tenement house. Its two-level cloister consists of an inner courtyard with a gallery of semicircular arches, supported by Tuscan columns, each arch framed by an alfiz, while the smaller upper part has been completely altered by successive renovations. Nevertheless, it maintains the Mudejar atmosphere typical of the 16th century monasteries in the area.
