Hay tres claustros en el convento :
El de las novicias que tiene frescos de la letanía
El de los naranjos donde los frescos representan los ejercicios de San Ignacio
En el claustro Mayor se representa la vida de Jesús y María
Llama la atención el colorido en el que contrastan el blanco del sillar y los colores ocre y azul

There are three cloisters in the convent :
Novicias cloister with litany frescoes
Orange Trees cloister with frescoes representing San Ignacio Exercises
In Mayor Cloister is represented the Maria and Jesus life
It pays the attention the colour full were are contrasting the white colour of the sillar stone and the blues and ochers
