Monastic complex that emerged around the Hermitage of La Magdalena, from the 15th century. It is one of the Franciscan convents founded by San Juan de Ribera, who was Archbishop of Valencia between 1569 and 1611 and one of the leaders of the Counter-Reformation in Spain. The original building from the 15th century stands out, as well as the 17th century church with original tiles of the time, and the porticoed cloister.

The convent houses several exhibitions with religious objects (chasubles, monstrances and other objects of historical value), and an immense library, among whose copies stand out an incunabula and a map of Spain from the time of Philip II. On the upper floor you can also visit the cell of San Luis Amigó, founder of the Capuchin Tertiaries, furnished like the original. The convent does not have a hostel to accommodate pilgrims.
