The private tour of the Royal Convent of Barefoot Nuns (Las Descalzas) includes aspects developed by our friend Miss Katherine Mills on her meticulous master's degree work, focussed on this Royal Convent.

Juana de Austria founded the convent in 1559 in her birthplace, the former palace of Alonso Gutierrez, treasurer of Emperor Charles V.

33 nuns from families of the Spanish High Nobility habited the Convent, to practice the way of life of Santa Clara. Juana neither professed as a nun nor spent much time in the Convent but her relatives, Empress Mary and her daughter Margaret, maintained the Imperial presence of the Austrians in the Royal Barefoot convent.

This private tour describes in detail the impressive Art Collection of the Descalzas, mainly a contribution of illustrious ladies of Hasburgh Dynasty, and, exclusively, an innovative analysis of the most intimate convent space and how life in the Convent went on.

This private tour of Madrid Museum Tours is an exceptional opportunity to get to know the Monastery of the Descalzas in a way that has never been explained before, in any other tour.
