Santa Clara pastries are among the most popular sweets of Coimbra, and have their origin linked to the Santa Clara Monastery. Established in the late thirteenth century, the convent of Santa Clara-a-Velha enjoyed special protection from Queen Saint Elizabeth, who would spend there part of her life. Due to the flooding of the river, it was abandoned in 1677 and the nuns moved to the convent of Santa Clara-a-Nova, whose church still preserves the tomb of the queen, known as Queen Saint Elizabeth of Portugal.
