The southern side of the square is taken up by the impressive Iglesia y Monasterio deSan Franciscode Asís . Originally constructed in 1608 and rebuilt in the baroque style from 1719 to 1738, San Francisco de Asís was taken over by the Spanish state in 1841 as part of a political move against the powerful religious orders of the day, when it ceased to be a church. Today it’s both a concert hall hosting classical music and the Museo de Arte Religioso replete with religious paintings, silverware, woodcarvings and ceramics.
