Convent of the Capuchos

Parques De Sintra Convento Dos Capuchos Claustro

In the Cloister, surrounded by a dense wood of native vegetation, the friars practised the exercise of contemplation. Here, there is the passageway that leads from the Vestibule, the regular entrance into the convent, as well as a small external outhouse, the Herbolarium, where we may still encounter a set of braziers that were formerly used for the preparation of aromatic and medicinal herbs.
