We visited Sta. Clara six years ago. This visit was much more special, after the restoration of the wall paintings in the cloister. You can almost feel the hand of the artisans who painted these lovely scenes.

The building and it's central court yard are a nice escape front he bustling city streets. The view from the roof top, especially at sun set is pretty spectacular.
