In 1513, the Great Captain Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba and his wife gave to the monastery two orchards called "Alcudia de Ainadamar" and "Alcudia de los Abencerrajes". They were located at the foot of La Golilla. In 1516, the friars abandoned the orchards because they were rugged terrains and the monks did not feel safe. So, work was reinitiated that same year. The monastery developed one great building, whose temple, sacristy and sanctuary stood out. The sanctuary was made by Francisco Hurtado Izquierdo. The Charterhouse of Granada brought a great number of terrains together for the agricultural holding on which the monastery depended. To do this, it was necessary for them to create a series of infrastructures like warehouses, etc. In 1835, the convent was closed for good due to the decrees of secularization introduced by Mendizábal.
