Square Zocodober

The name of this square is the same one of the one that has the square of the city of Toledo in Spain, and that it was built by the Arabs in the century IX, it was bought and bull ring. Their fame increased when being included by Cervantes in its Cuisse.

In this square the only pileta is located that has survived to the step of the time and whose history is counted in the badge embedded to the wall. The badge points out that water was given by iron pipe, being a prioress the mother María Manuela of the Sacred Spirit and Hurtado, during its second priorate, the year of 1865. She entered to the convent January 6 1821 and he/she died October 20 of 1884. It was devote of the Souls of the Purgatory.

Santa Catalina's monastery in 1834 had two piletas that provided from water to the nuns, besides a pylon that he/she assisted the neighboring population's necessities.

The Mirador

Starting from the year 2000 an atmosphere has been created that allows to appreciate from the high thing the architectural complex of the monastery. Making use of the ashlar stairway that takes to the later part of the dressing room of the image of Our Mrs. of the Remedies, you arrives to the Mirador.Given raising it of the steps and, in spite of habérsele endowed with a handrail, to visit this atmosphere can be risky for children and old men. At the end of the tiers one has a wide landing in which has been built in ashlar four benches where the visitor can sit down. The projection has risen to protect the visitor, while he/she admires the landscape.

The volcano that is observed, to the north, to the bottom, calls you Chachani and the temple that from here it is appreciated, as if it was a rocket, it is that of the convent of Recoleta, occupied by friars and that, it is also open to the public with its museums and its great library. Before us they are the intricate streets and cells of the monastery in a panoramic view of group.
