ST. KLARA'S CHURCH

Stockholm, Sweden

St. Klara's Church, Stockholm, Sweden

The Church of St. Klara started life as a convent church for the Poor Clares order around 1280. It is unclear who large the founding was because in 1527 King Gustav Vasa had the church and convent destroyed during the Swedish Reformation.

A new church was constructed on the orders of John III in 1572 and it is the enlarged and altered version of this that survives today.
