Trips and Days Out in the Algarve

The Carmelite sisters founded the convent, which was constructed in 1710 but eventually fell into disrepair. The building’s condition was restored with extensive renovations.  Currently serving as the city’s cultural hub, it features shows, concerts, and talks in its auditorium in addition to art, photography, sculpture, and ceramics exhibitions. The old nuns’ quarters have been converted into art exhibitions upstairs. In the courtyard, there are some menhirs and a little chapel from the 18th century. It costs nothing to enter.
