Convento de San Jerónimo

At the beginning it was planned as “College of St. Jerome” by the Order of Mercy.

Mercedarians soon obtained the funds and land for construction in 1757. However, lacking legal permits for the period, the construction is almost torn down until in 1765 it was used as the building of the Real Income Alcabalas and Royal Customs .

Construction was affected by earthquakes, and the remains were used as building materials for other works.
