The Iglesia de Santa Bárbara is a beautiful Rococco orphan. Her mother, the Salesas Reales Convent, is now the Supreme Court of Spain.
The Convent was created in A.D. 1748 by Barbara of Portugal, Queen of Spain. She wanted to create a school for girls of noble birth and a retirement home for herself.
Although the Queen died before her husband, Ferdinand VI, they are both buried in a tomb within this church. Ferdinand was very much in love with his wife, and I imagine he didn’t want to be parted from her. He is one of the few kings who is entombed outside of El Escorial.
