Description

Founded in the 14C, the Royal Monastery of Santa Clara was built on the ruins of an Almohad palace. The Gothic cloister, surrounding the main pool of the Arab palace, has an Arab portico with three festooned arches. Excavations have revealed traces of an Almoravid palace (12C), including a fragment of a 12C painting depicting a flautist. In the museum, which has an important collection of Islamic art, note the Christ on the Cross by Francisco Salzillo.
