A Gothic jewel in The Northern Pearl
The Monastery of San Vicente Ferrer, the church of Santo Domingo and the Mirabel Palace form a complex commissioned by the dukes of Plasencia in the 15th to 17th centuries; a complex full of legend and built in the Late Gothic style with Renaissance touches.
The convent still contains some of its original features, such as the coffered ceiling of the lower cloister, the refectory pulpit, a marvellous 16th c. ceramic frieze and many remnants of mural paintings of the period. But the most spectacular space is the raised staircase, one of the most beautiful in Spain, built in 1577.
