This convent is famous for being the place where Cervantes is supposed to be buried, although the exact place is unknown because it was lost due to repeated work on the church. Located in the Literary Quarter, the building as we know it dates back to 1673 and is the work of the architect Marcos López. It is a modest church with a Latin cross plan and with three Baroque altars in the aspe. The façade is very austere, entirely in brick with a three-door entrance. The daughters of Lope and Cervantes took their vows in this church.
