Convent of Santa Clara

17th c. Baroque

Its origin as a convent goes back to the 13th century, although its present-day structure is the result of a baroque reconstruction that was completed in the 17th century by Pedro Arén.

It has a peculiar curtain-façade, a clear example of Compostela's baroque style, designed by Simón Rodríguez in the 18th century, which hides, at the back of a small garden, the real, simpler façade that leads to the church.

It houses an altarpiece by Domingo de Andrade from 1700 and several churrigueresque altars.
