The Santa Catarina Monastery was built in 1579 and enlarged in the 17th century.

The over 20.000-square-meter monastery was built predominantly in the Mudéjar style, a style of Iberian architecture and decoration strongly influenced by Moorish taste and workmanship and is characterized by its vividly painted walls.
