This old Clarissa convent church, belonging to one of the most wealthy religious orders settled in the city of Porto back on the 12th century, belongs today to the National Institute of the Patrimony, and it is a truly shame to see how degraded it is because of the lack of maintenance.
From the old convent, only a part exists and is occupied by public services, as the National Guard Headquarters and other institutions. The visit to the convent is not allowed, but we can look inside the beautiful church whose gilded carvings were made with more than 200 kilos of gold, testifying its glorious past!
