The Monastery church of St. Martin Pinario, overlooks San Martin square at the back of the Monastery. The flight of steps goes downwards to an impressive Plateresque façade from the late 16th century composed like an altarpiece, with statues and relief's.

Inside the church the Baroque gold decorated main altar and the lower stalls in the choir are very interesting as well as the sacristy and several chapels. The barrel vaulted arch is remarkable.
The walnut choir stalls are among the most important in Spain.
This church is an exceptional museum of baroque art.
