Santa Fe Abbey

Santa Fe Abbey (Spanish: Monasterio de Santa Fe) is a former Cistercian monastery in Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain. It was established on this site in 1341 or 1343, as a resettlement of the original Cistercian foundation of Fuente Clara Abbey, a daughter house of Bonnefont Abbey, of 1223,[1] which was obliged to move here from its original site in Alcolea de Cinca in Aragon because of banditry.

The monastery was dissolved either in 1808 or in 1835-37. There are no visible remains of the monastic buildings. The large domed church still on the site was built in the late 18th century (completed 1788).
