The monastery of Santa Clara de la Columna in Belalcázar (Cordoba) is one of the most important examples of Mudejar Gothic in Andalusia. Its poor state of conservation obliged an important intervention of restoration and consolidation to be carried out. During these works, a series of panels of the Mudejar coffered ceilings with hidden paintings, were discovered, which have been subjected to an important material, architectural and graphic study.
This article summarises the multidisciplinary research work that has allowed this Renaissance graffiti to be brought to light and documented, as well as its contextualisation within the artistic logic of the monastery.
