What to expect

Get your tickets and visit the 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.

For several centuries, the woodland surrounding the building was cared for and maintained by the monks who lived in the convent, so that it survived the gradual deforestation of the Sintra hills.

Enjoy this unique experience and immerse yourself in the mysteries that surround this magical place.
