Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Santa Clara Convent


The building has a single nave, divided into six sections, and a semi-circular apse. The roofs are barrel vaults with lunettes between rib arches, with a hemispherical vault on a pendentive in the chancel and a quarter sphere vault in the main chapel. 

The church’s only doorway is located in the wall of the nave, being lintelled and framed by thick buttresses. On the same wall there is a simple brick belfry made up of two sections. The church has characteristic features of the 16th century, although the style of the interior is the result of a renovation carried out during the 17th century.

Today it has become the Fundación Educativa Doctrina Cristiana, Colegio Santa Clara.
