Overview

This convent was founded by King Alfonso VII for Cluniac nuns who would later become Cistercians during the reformation in 1177. Noteworthy architectural features include two big Mudejar-Renaissance cloisters, the refectory, which is decorated with 16th century tiles, the chapter house with fine flooring and a tile-work abbess' chair, and the church, itself, a single-nave building with intersecting vaults. The Plateresque entrance, built by Alonso de Covarrubias, is also a masterpiece. The San Clemente convent is a convent of reclusion and, therefore, no visitors are admitted.
