A nobleman (Gaspar Elvas de Campos) of the Royal House founded Santo António Convent in 1571. In that same year he gave it to the Capuchos Friars’ Order Highly influenced by Renaissance style, this convent has kept the original décor of the church interior, such as the chairs, the lavishly decorated pulpit in gilt carved wood and ceiling’s painted coffers. The two-floor cloister has a fountain at the centre. Some monks and local inhabitants of that time are buried here.
