Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Purísima Concepción Convent


The monastery was founded in 1631 by Rodrigo Ponce de León, 4th Duke of Arcos. For seven years, the Convent was relocated in various outbuildings until the Lords of Marchena decided to place within the ducal estate. 

The baroque, single-nave church from 1751 has beautiful, non-polychrome wood altarpieces. The statues that grace its walls and the Convent’s choir are remarkable. One of the sculptures was made by Durero in 1504.

A community of cloistered nuns run the small guesthouse inside the cloister. They also sell confectionery through a wooden turntable in the entrance.

Opening times

Monday to Saturday: 17:00 - 19:00; preferably.
