The Monasterio de San Jerónimo was built by El Florentino, El Indiano and Diego de Siloé. The altarpiece is a wonderful piece. Its layout conforms a single nave Latin cross, covered by a Gothic fan vaulting with side chapels and the most notable octagonal apse which the magnificent altarpiece fits to. The convent owns several cloisters. The first of them is Gothic, with basket-handle archs, fantasy images capitals and beautiful Plateresque fronts, works of Siloé and his school. The second one conformed in an early Renaissance style and its dimensions are smaller.
