Bibendum
Founded in the 14C, the Royal Monastery of Santa Clara was built on the ruins of a almohad palace. The Gothic cloister, surrounding the main pool of the earlier Almohad building, incorporates an Arab portico with three festooned arches. Excavations have revealed earlier 12C remains (predating the Alhambra in Granada) which include a colonnaded pavilion and fragments of 12C wall painting representing a flautist (rare in Islamic art which does not normally depict the human form).
