Convento de São José (Convent of São José (St Joseph)


Built in the early 18th century, this important monument is used as a venue for a variety of cultural events, including temporary exhibitions.

The cloister, which is of great simplicity, has four arcades and a well in the middle. In the small chapel, there is an 18th century altarpiece.

Another notable feature is the foundlings’ wheel located at the entrance to the convent.
