Lisbon has a lot of them. More than one might imagine, really. Because, you know, religion and stuff.
And getting into one was not always easy…
But, alas, times have changed.

Here’s what the organizers of “Open Conventos” tell us:
“What do the Assembly of the Republic, the National Museum of Ancient Art, the Patriarcado de Lisboa, and the Chiado Warehouses have in common? Each is a former convent or a monastery. Lisbon is punctuated by buildings that were once houses of religious communities, each with its own purposes – prayer, hospitality, education – and which today serve very different purposes. Come and see the places and the memory of these buildings.”

Here’s what you have a chance to explore, free of charge:
-Monastery of Our Lady of the Nazareth of Lisbon (Convento das Bernardas)
-Convent of St. Francis of Paula (Church of St. Francis of Paula)
-Convent of Our Lady of Jesus (Mercês Church)
-Monastery of the Blessed Sacrament of Lisbon (Church of Santa Catarina)
-Convent of Our Lady of the Conception of the Cardaes
-Casa Professa de São Roque (Church and Museum of São Roque)
-Convent of São Pedro de Alcântara
-Monastery of São Vicente de Fora
-Mother of God Convent (National Tile Museum)
