The Santa Clara Convent was built in the late 16th century, by order of the second captain-major of Funchal, João Gonçalves da Câmara, in the vicinity of his father's residence, to gather the daughters of the local nobility.
 
The set of buildings of the Santa Clara convent is a valuable heritage for its furnishings, but more importantly for having reached the present day with the same mission that it was built for: A Convent for Franciscan Sisters.
In the Convent we can visit: the Courtyard, the São Gonçalo de Amarante Chapel, possibly built in the 17th century, an access porch to the Choirs and Cloister, and the Lower and Upper Choir, with a beautiful panorama of the interior of Santa Clara Church.
