THE STREET MÁLAGA AND THE ROOM ZURBARAN


In the monastery there are six streets, a passage and a square, besides three cloisters.

The names of the existent streets in the monastery are relatively modern denominations. They correspond to a date around 1940, when the former Rector of San Agustín's National University, don Carlos Diego Gibson, visited this monastery with special permission. He, in 1941, obtained the first pictures of the interior of the monastery that at last determined the declaration of Historical Monument that Santa Catalina shows.

The doctor Gibson who Spain had visited, when traveling the streets of the monastery associated them with characteristic of some Hispanic cities exclaiming: This resembles Málaga... this to Seville... this to Granada... and from that date the streets have names of Spanish cities.

Zurbarán Salts

In this atmosphere you can appreciate fine china of English porcelain, of Flanders and Sevres, European in general that the nuns brought for their personal use, to the moment of their entrance.

In this atmosphere we also have one of the most beautiful decorated cabinets in the monastery. It is that is to say a piece of furniture with many compartments and a niche kind of a small niche to the center of the group. The decorated cabinet is the Spanish classic's piece of furniture.

In the central and more outstanding place of the atmosphere we have the Archangel's square San Miguel that is affirmed it was colored following the Spanish clergyman's cánones Francisco of Zurbarán. It endorses this statement the disposition of the eyes that you/they give the impression of following us toward where we mobilize us, as consequence of having been colored, the body, in position of three rooms, that is to say with a light turn toward a side.

Francisco of Zurbarán (1598 - 1664), monks' painter and saints, he/she worked almost exclusively starting from 1645 for convents of Latin America, reason for which reminds it to him in this atmosphere.
