Plaza de San Francisco's southern side is dominated by the impressive Iglesia y Monasterio de San Francisco de Asís. Constructed in 1608 and rebuilt in baroque style from 1719 to 1738, it was overtaken by the Spanish state in 1841 as a political move against the powerful religious orders of the day, and ceased to be a church. Today it’s a concert hall hosting classical music and the Museo de Arte Religioso replete with religious paintings, silverware, woodcarvings and ceramics.
