At Tordesillas, Peter I of Castile built a Mudejar palace reflecting his passion for building and decorating royal residences, such as the Alcazar of Seville, where he was also influenced by contemporary Nasrid art. Fulfilling the final will of the king, his daughter the infanta Beatrice founded a Saint Clare convent at this palace in 1363.
A significant amount of the Mudejar palace has been preserved, such as the main facade, the small patio known as the "Arabic" patio due to its design (restored by Repullés in 1897), the Golden Chapel and various arches complete with elaborate plasterwork, as well as the baths located in a small separate building.
However, the galleries in the main courtyard of the palace, which were converted into the cloisters, and one of the palace wings were rebuilt in the 18th century.
The gothic church was added in the mid 15th century and its main chapel is covered with a large wooden frame in the Mudejar style. Built at the same time as this church, the Chapel of the Saldaña family is also considered to be a gothic masterpiece.
