The monastery plays a very important role in this small city outside Sevilla.  Where for centuries the charitable work to the population carried out by the nuns who run this small convent has helped support their community.

The nuns now number only 11, but they offer their community a place of refuge, shelter, spiritual advice and food.

Due to the increase in homelessness, the monastery is trying to establish a 50 bed shelter and the foundation was happy to support the purchase of 10 beds to start.

With the onset of Covid however, the sisters quickly changed course and started sewing masks to be distributed.
