Show sight on map

Convento de Santa Clara is a defunct convent located on Calle del Rey Heredia in Córdoba, Andalusia, Spain.

The minaret, re-fashioned into a bell-tower, and the building's Calle Osio portal date to this period. The convent was initially situated within the mosque and had eight nuns. Throughout its history, it went by various names. Originally known Santa Catalina, it became "Santa Clara" after installation of the Poor Clares; it was also known as "Santa Isabel" during a time of tribute to Isabella of France who had strong ties to the Spanish Crown. The religious order was incorporated to Santa Cruz in 1868, when the convent was abandoned. The minaret/bell tower was declared a Bien de Interés Cultural site in 1931.
