And my eyes were surprised to behold the most beautiful panorama in this world

Charles Fréderic de Merveilleux, "Memórias instrutivas sobre Portugal 1723-1726", in O Portugal de D. João V visto por três estrangeiros

There are two things I have that greatly please me El Escorial and the Capuchos Convent

Filipe II of Spain (I of Portugal), Letters from Filipe II to his daughters, 1581-1585

Convent of the Capuchos

A Franciscan convent built in direct contact with nature and in keeping with a philosophy of extreme architectural and decorative simplicity. The Capuchos Convent is extremely small in size, being notable for the great poverty of its construction. It is also known as the “Cork convent” because of the extensive use of cork in the protection and decoration of its tiny spaces. Its rustic appearance and great austerity are indissociable from the surrounding vegetation, since the building is completely integrated into the natural environment, to the extent that enormous granite boulders have been incorporated into its construction.
