Entrance to Convent of the Capuchos
Audio guide (available for an extra cost in English, Portuguese, and Spanish)
  • Explore a Franciscan convent built in direct contact with nature in the stunning hills of Sintra
  • See how the convent was built to embody the ideals of the Order of St. Francis of Assisi and learn about their faith
  • Discover why it's called the 'Cork Convent' thanks to the protective use of cork in its tiny rustic spaces

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.

Los restos del convento son bonitos pero nos pareció excesivo el precio de la entrada en comparación con lo que vimos.
