Description

This is an enclosure convent of which only a small part may be seen (entrance, church and market garden). It is a large building with numerous later additions. The entrance is noteworthy, where there is a splendid cross showing a representation of Christ on one side and the Vigin of Las Angustias on the other. On the base, there is a serpent and four skulls, one on each corner. Adjoining this cross, there is a finely-made peto de animas (receptacle for ex-votos) with curious iconography.

Access

In the very centre of Cuntis.
