The Monastery of Santa Chiara was built in the first half of ‘600 to establish a female religious community, the Poor Clares. It used to have a large church, now occupied by the Museum of Santa Chiara. At the end of 700’s Joseph II of Austria suppressed the order and converted the monastery into a centre for the processing and production of silk. Later on it was turned into a military storage facility. Due to the First World War, the building was severely damaged and in post-war period was partially renovated. Later on, more renovation was carried out in order to host the Italian finance police. In 2010 it was restored and it became the core of the University of Udine in the town of Gorizia.
Students can access the Polo Santa Chiara from via Santa Chiara, 1 and from Corso Verdi, on the opposite side of the Post Office building.
