Presentation
This monastic set of buildings started being built in 1649 and replaced the primitive convent of the Clarisse nuns, that the flooded Mondego river had destroyed. The building has a baroque style but is sober and practical and adorned with turrets.

Specific characteristics

The building has a baroque style but is sober and practical, adorned with small turrets. In the church, more precisely in the retable of the high altar, there is a urn made of silver and crystal from the 17th century where Santa Isabel remains are venerated. The previous tomb of the patron saint, made of stone and sculptured by Mestre Pêro in 1330 is in the lower choir of the church. The cloisters, dating from 1733, were designed by Carlos Mardel
