Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Esta torre de San Francisco es lo unico que queda en pie del antiguo convento conocido popularmente como convento de San Francisco del segundo tercio del siglo XV.

A las afueras de Zafra y junto a la carretera nacional N-432, encontrarás está solitaria torre junto a una explanada, donde se encontraba el convento franciscano de San Benito, aunque popularmente se le conoce como convento de San Francisco. Construido a finales del siglo XV, de estilo renacentista, y mandado construir por el II Conde de Feria, Gómez Suárez de Figueroa, por influencia de su madre María Manuela. Se amplia y reformó en 1575, pero al construirse con materiales sencillos de calidad muy pobre hace que se deteriore rápidamente, sobre todo después del saqueo en 1808, en el período de la Guerra de la Independencia,contra los franceses, que lo utilizaron como punto de ataque a Zafra.

De la torre destaca su cúpula de cinco cupulines. Junto a la torre hay un panel informativo...fue uno de los conventos más importantes de la zona.

En construcciones cercanas a la torre, se han encontrado restos del Calcolotico y época romana.
