Convent of Santa Catalina

A historic monument in Santa Cruz-La Laguna

The enclosed Dominican convent of Santa Catalina de Siena was first inaugurated in 1611 in what was once the house of Los Adelantados. It features a series of fascinating Baroque altarpieces such as that over the Main Chapel and that of the Virgen del Tránsito, as well as an embossed silver exhibitor. The most noteworthy feature in the church is a sculpture representing Santa Rosa de Lima by Rodríguez de la Oliva.

Once a year on 15 February, the nunnery opens its doors for believers to visit the incorrupt body of the Servant of God, Sister María de Jesús de León Delgado (1643-1731).
