Santa Clara Convent, Antigua Guatemala

Constructed during the first years of the XVIII century, the interior of Santa Clara features beautiful double arches of excellent proportions that surround the convent’s spacious cloister, which was founded to shelter Clarisa nuns.

The facade of the temple, elaborately decorated in stucco, is inside the convent and was designed to be seen from inside by the Clarisa nuns, who never ventured out.
