Convent of the Capuchos

Parques De Sintra Convento Dos Capuchos Casa Das Hortas

Heading down the stairs from the cloister takes us to the convent’s Gardens, essential to the life of this community. In addition to the functional character of these gardens, which maintained the supply of fresh produce to the convent, this area was also a place for communing with nature.


The Garden House was restored and converted for new purposes, specifically toilets and accommodation for visitors, and also serves as a multi-purpose room for hosting different activities.
