Laceworks of Semide (municipality of Miranda do Corvo) were used in the twelfth century by Benedictine nuns belonging to the Benedictine Monastery that was erected at this location in 1183. The nuns wore this type of lace for decoration and ornamentation of the altars and garments in religious festivals. They are made with a needle made of wire, lacing the cotton thread, which is attached to the shoulder by a small winkle. Once completed the lacework, it is bathed in gum, which increases its durability. There are different kinds of lacework, such as the cloth of stars, centerpiece with casters and gourds, or a rectangular cloth in spider-like shape, etc..
