  • Explore a Franciscan convent built in direct contact with nature in the stunning hills of Sintra

Picture yourself in a fairy tale forest surrounded by romantic stone buildings, and you might be halfway to imagining the Convent of the Capuchos.

This Franciscan convent in the heart of scenic Sintra was founded in 1560 and will make you feel like a part of nature. Walk the tiny cells and corridors, and through ancient doors. See the abundance of cork used for protection and witness life through a monk's eye. You'll get beautiful views from here over the Sintra hills, too.
