Convent of Santa Clara

Convent of Santa Clara The Convent of Santa Clara in Carmona (Convento de Santa Clara) was built in 1260 as a convent of the Clarisse, a female analogy of the Franciscans. The convent was very close to the Castilian monarchy. Its building was granted to its nuns by Alfonso X., but it was a part of the palace ofhis brother Prince Fadrique before.

The Convent got its current look during the 16th and 17th centuries. Nevertheless, nowadays visitors can take a view of the gothic Don Fadrique Tower only. It goes about a watch tower which links the Romantic and the Gothic through its decorative styles on its three bodies. In its facade, a picture of Santa Clara from the 17th century that is made of ceramic tiles can be seen.
