We were walking thru the streets of Zafra and came upon the Museo Santa Clara. It is a municipal museum. We only paid a donation as the city graciously gives anyone free access The chapel was the first thing we saw. It was beautiful. As we continued I was amazed at all of the Medieval art that they had on display. I was so impressed by their collection. This was a great unplanned visit and it turned out to be a great experience!!

The focus is very much on the convent - life there in the early days, habits, a tiny cell, works of art and furniture, reliquaries, the long relationship with the noble house of Feria... - and although there is more (e.g. about the history of Zafra and the area long before the community ever existed), this is the main thing. I was particularly impressed by that tiny cell.

Signs and panels are almost all in Spanish, but they're not very long and quite easy to understand even if you don't speak the language.

The nuns make and sell absolutely delicious little cakes.

It's also possible to visit the richly decorated, intensely spiritual, convent church, with funerary effigies of the Feria family. On the wall opposite the door there is an unforgettable figure of Christ crucified.

Sometimes there are concerts, talks, and special exhibitions in the museum or the church. The tourist office (924 551036) will know.
