Convento de Santa Clara
Reviewed 12 August 2017

A place for contemplation . We arrived about half an hour before the convent closed in the evening . We entered and were looking into the church when a nun approached us to buy entrance tickets and told us to visit the church and cloisters first as services would begin soon . We then visited the tower for views over the city . The same friendly ( and English speaking ) nun then escorted us to the gates . We asked if we could take her picture locking the gates which she readily agreed to , allowing us to hold the keys -- and immediately gave us her email address to send the picture to ! One of the quirky experiences that make a vacation memorable .

Lovely convent and historic rooms, worth a visit while in Carmona. Not free, but inexpensive. Friendly staff

The convent is a special place, full of calm and intimacy. A jewel of Baroque architecture which you will enjoy especially if it is a hot day. You can buy the sweets made by the nuns in artesanal way. A heavenly taste!!

The convent was surprisingly nice to visit. A lot more to it than one would expect. A variety of artifacts throughout the church and a lovely courtyard entry. It is a peaceful place to sit for a few moments and reflect on life.

The convent is beautiful with many religious artefacts. This is more than an attraction. Go and see if you are in search of calm peacefulness and support the work of these lovely women - buy some cakes
