Monasterio de San Francisco

Monasterio de San Francisco Monasterio de San Francisco was a Franciscan convent built in 1492 by the VII Señor de Palma’s orders. It was transformed into a charming hotel in 1985 yet preserves the simplicity and tranquility of a monastery. The refectory is now a very quiet reading room, the ancient vegetable garden still supplies the kitchen, and the patios are the same ones walked by the monks in silent prayer five centuries ago. Only the large swimming pool shaded by orange trees is a reminder of the modern world. What makes this place special is its role in the discovery of America. Franciscan monks based here founded American missions, took their language and customs to the New World, introduced the famous orange groves in California, and opened the Mission de Palma del Rio in San Diego. Columbus spent time here before setting out for his journey, as the monastery was a strategic and powerful centro de conoscimiento, or center of learning and culture during his time. The cities of San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego, all owe their names to the monasteries present in this area. Today guests can still drink the orange juice of the garden’s 65 orange trees, some of which are five centuries old.
