Dragons

Next to Santo Domingo Square and Alfonso X the Wise avenue, is the Monastery of Santa Clara la Real. It is unmistakable for its famous facade with its 2 towers lattices. Here a photo of its facade that I took in 2009.
The present church belongs to the eighteenth century, but sits on a primitive temple of gothic origin of the XVI century. This in turn is built on the site of what was once an Islamic palace of the XII century.
Gothic church has just reached us the high choir. It is a very typical square starry vault Gothic room . The paintings that decorate the vault represent the classic struggle between good and evil. Incredible are the representatives of the Army of Darkness: spectacular dragons.
