We had a memorable visit to one of Madrid’s landmarks; Real Monasterio de la Encarnación (Royal Monastry of the Incarnation).
The Convent was founded in 1611 by Queen Margarita, wife of Philip III, as a convent for cloistered nuns.
The convent keeps important pictorial and sculpture collections from the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as the reliquary that houses a group of 700 pieces including the famous relic of St. Pantaleon.
We would like to thank Mr. Alonso Colmenarejo Director of Protocol, our guide Mr. Benito Castro and
our beloved friend Mayca Campos for organising this wonderful visit.
