The Convent of the Conceptionists (Convento de las Monjas Concepcionistas), in Vejer de la Frontera, is all that remains of the original ensemble founded by Juan Amaya in the mid-16th century. It served as his and his wife’s own mausoleum.
The façade of the church is in Renaissance style. Next to it you will find the most legendary street of the city: the so called Arch of the Nuns (“Arco de las Monjas”). It consists of a series of buttresses supporting the lateral wall. It was placed as a result of the earthquake that struck the town in the 18th century.
Today, the building houses the Municipal Museum of Customs and Traditions of Vejer.
