Convento de Santa Clara

Santa Clara, s/n
Santiago de Compostela, 15705
Doña Violante, wife of Alphonse the Wise, founded this cloistered convent in the 13th century, which still carries out this same function today. The building we see now, however, is not the original. This one is clearly baroque and was constructed in the seventeenth century, a century with special significance for Compostela. Some elements of the first building are still preserved, such as the church pulpit and an image of the Virgin Mary. The doorway, is a spectacular example of Galician Baroque and it was built by Simon Rodriguez, a renowned architect. The overdone structural effects are typical of this style and three mysterious shapes, popularly called barrels, can be found near the top of the doorway.
