A magnificent piece of architecture
The legend says that a poor monk named Beato António initiated the construction of this convent in the early 1500's with only 7 cents. After the expulsion of the monks in 1834 it became a hospital and a cookie and pasta factory. Nowadays the simple magnificence of the austere straight lines turned this space into one of the most magnificent spaces for events in Lisbon.
"...an intimate atmosphere provided by some of the former monastic rooms."
