One of the most charming alleys in Arcos de la Frontera

For my taste is the most charming corner of Arcos de la Frontera. It is across the top, to the back of the basilica and is on one of the sidewalks while the other is between the convent of the Incarnation and many medieval palaces. In this place is the facade of the convent that was constructed in the year 1529 in gothic style as directed by Juan Garcia Warped. In the 16th century the town was full of charity hospitals, according to historian Miguel Mancheño sponsored by the nobility and run by religious orders. East of the Incarnation was supported by Juana Ximenez, nicknamed as La Camacha. He served as a chapel, hospital and convent from the years 1529-1855, when it was approved the confiscation of Mendizabal.
