The monumental complex of Santa Chiara, comprising the Church, monastery and convent, was raised from the 1310 1328 by order of King Robert of Anjou and his wife Sancha of Majorca. The Kings, both devoted to St. Francis of Assisi and Saint Clare, wanted to build a Franciscan Citadel accepted the Poor Clares monastery and the convent adjacent to the Friars Minor. The Church, central nucleus of the whole complex, emerged with the title sacred host or the sacred body of Christ, dedication suggested by Eucharistic Miracle in Bolsena, 1264; the name changed immediately in Santa Chiara, probably for the extraordinary number of poor Clares present in the monastery.
