The Cloisters of Santa Chiara

Santa Chiara

The cloisters of the chiesa Santa Chiara in Naples is a quiet and peaceful oasis in the heart of old Napoli. The cloisters are decorated with spanish majolica tiles and are stunning against the backdrop of citrus trees … adorned with ripening fruit! The remains of Queen Joanna were hidden somewhere in the clositers many years ago (14th century) after she was strangled.
