This is the outside view of this amazing complex. Theres something being constructes in front of it on the other side of the raod so I thing this view is no longer be suitable to enjoy since some kind of building will close this amazing visibility of the convent and surrounding buildings.
The coisters inside follow the style of Toscan Orden, designed by the architect Afonso Alvares in 1569 to 1570.
To go in you have to go inside the city entrance door of Porta de Lagoa, go around the convent's building and turn the first right. You'll see an arch. You have to knock at the first door on your right side just after the arch. Some nun will come to the door. just ask to go in and see the convent.
On this picture and since you're seing Evora from the outside part of the walls, the "Aqueduto da Agua de Prata" or in english the Silver Water Aqueduct from renaissance architecture designed by Fransisco de Arruda (born in Evora). By its importance and by the fact of being a large sized construction, importante people like Luis de Camoes and Joao de Barros came here to celebrate back in 1531.
Address: Rua Candido dos reis
Directions: Right on the Porta de Lagoa after the outside castle wall avenue of Lisboa.
