Clean, light, elegant and essential columns and arches stand out white against the sky in a deep blue, giving the whole a charm suspended over time. The small square on which the Convent overlooks is also very characteristic and lively. Here, more than anywhere else, you can feel the relaxed and somewhat 'vintage' atmosphere of the city. Unique and unmissable experience. Free with the Lisboa card.

This convent is just beautiful, we stayed for a while to observe these ruins. There is also a small museum to visit that traces the history of this ancient church.
Absolutely stunning. I strongly recommended that you visit the Lisbon Story Center first so you can fully appreciate the history behind the church that acts as the site of the museum. Take your time taking in not only the exhibits, but the remarkable architecture and historical significance of this church/museum.
Not long line getting ticket and info the site. The site is stunning! Very worth visiting. It’s also great not too packed inside unlike other attractions.
