Church of Santa Chiara

History

Sant Chiara is a religious complex that includes the Church of SaInt Chiara, a monastery, tombs and an archeological museum. The Church faces Benedetto Croce St, which is the easternmost leg of Spaccanapoli St. The double monastic complex was built in 1313–1340 by Queen Sancha of Majorca and her husband King Robert of Naples. Both of them are buried in the complex, and the legend says that from that day on, her ghost roamed the monastery with her hands clasped in prayer and the face covered with tears. Whoever tried to disturb her is now dead. You can visit the church at any time of the day. It’s practically impossible not to decide to enter when you pass in front of it, its majesty and beauty will conquer you.
