Santa Isabel de los Angeles Convent – Ronda

The Santa Isabel de los Angeles Convent, belonging to the nuns of the Order of St. Claire, under the Order of Saint Francis of Assis, was built in the 16th Century and subsequently enlarged.

It suffered considerable damage during the Spanish Civil War, although significant restoration has repaired much of this.

The most outstanding parts of this complex of buildings are the church and the portal of the convent, the latter being of lintelled stone and possessing the shield of the Franciscan Order in the centre of ist lintel.

The church consists of a single nave with a roof formed by groined vaults that hide the previous Moorish framework, although this can still be observed in the upper part of the choir. The exception is found in the presbytery which is covered by a half-cupola. The church is accessed first through a small atrium by a stone doorway and a semicircular archway which hears the order´s shield upon its keystone, the latter being framed by two columns above which there is a niche crowned with pinnacles and protected by a Moorish tiled roof.

The tower is situated on the longest wing of the church. It has three sections, of which the first is built of stone and is topped with a hip roof.

    Estimados Sres. Parroquia Virgen del Carmen

    Agradeceria me puedan ayudar a obtener referencias relacionadas a la fe de bautismo de mi bisabuelo Rafael Gordillo, español, hijo de Sebastian Gordillo y Elvira Abolafio, fecha de nacimiento 27/06/1892 fallecido en Argentina el 24/05/1951. El mismo arribo a la Argentina en el buque Barcelona proveniente del puerto de Málaga arribando a nuestro país el 16/05/1910 (fecha estimada).

    Muchas gracias por la información que me puedan aportar.
