Capuchos Convent Tips (1)

Visit a unique place,The Capuchos Convent.

Favorite thing Half way up to the Moorish castles in Sintra,there is a turning on the right which is sign posted to Capuchos Convent. Go along this long,leafy and very twisty road and you will come to this incredible monastry that has been empty for many years and recently restored. Get a guided tour, well worth it,I don't usually like tours, but found this one very informative and interesting,and the guy didn't go on and on!!The convent is made into the rock,and you get a real feeling of the hardships the eight monks who lived there, had to endure.
