Maravillosa iglesia del convento fundado por el Duque de Lerma. Antiguamente recorría un pasadizo desde el actual Parador,hasta la Colegiata, pasando por el Monasterio. Aún hoy se conserva el pasadizo interno desde el monasterio a la colegiata. Tiene un bonito retablo con Cristo crucificado junto a la Virgen y San Juan, coronando la iglesia. Abajo, La Ascensión en el centro, tal y como es el nombre del convento, y a cada lado, San Francisco y Santa Clara, fundadora de las Clarisas. Actualmente ya no se celebra misa diaria pero se puede visitar todos los días y es un lugar perfecto para hacer una parada y rezar. El convento en su totalidad pasó a ser propiedad de Iesu Communio, comunidad que se ocupa de el. Venden en la puerta contigua los mejores dulces de España....

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
