This collection that Santa Casa da Misericórdia of Lisbon is publishing on its real estate assets of historical and artistic interest continues with the fourth volume dedicated to the convent of S. 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 the event of victory for the Portuguese, to found in Lisbon a convent under the Arrábida Province, the most austere of the Franciscan friars. The aim of this volume is to reconstitute its construction phases and the artistic heritage that survives from the various eras, through in-depth research and analysis, systematising all the knowledge acquired from its origins to the present day. The aim of this collection is to enhance the heritage of the institution and the city through the dissemination of the technical studies carried out as part of the rehabilitation project, where there was a permanent dialogue between the art historian and the architect. This combination of complementary perspectives and experiences has enriched our knowledge of the building's past and provided the basis for the most appropriate solutions for its future operation.
