Convento São Pedro de Alcântara

Reading proposal

The fourth volume of the Heritage Collection is dedicated to the convent of São Pedro de Alcântara, located in Bairro Alto. The process of its foundation dates back to 1665 when the Marquis of Marialva, in the battle of Montes Claros, promised, in case of victory of the Portuguese, to found a convent in Lisbon subject to the Province of Arrábida, the most austere of Franciscan friars.
The aim of this volume is to reconstruct its construction stages and the remaining artistic heritage of the various eras, through in-depth research and analysis, systematizing all the knowledge acquired from its origins to the present.
