CATHEDRAL

NOSSA SENHORA DA CONCEIÇÃO CONVENT
This convent is closely linked to the story of Sister Mariana Alcoforado, who is buried there. The original nucleus includes the church, decorated in 17th. and 18th. century carved gilt work, the cloister, which has four galleries, and the Chapter House, which is panelled with Arab-Hispanic tiles decorated with geometric and plant motifs.
