Elegant Decay

Like most of the buildings existing in Lisbon during the 18th century, this convent was all but completely destroyed in the earthquake of 1755. However, the building was neither fully renovated nor taken down, and remains in a state of fascinating ruin. The church was partially rebuilt in the 20th century, and another section of the convent was converted into an archaeological museum. Originally built in the 14th century, it has gothic elements as well as some Art Nouveau bits that were added during the partial rebuild. It is unique and something to see for anyone interested in architecture, history or religion, or those looking for a place with a peaceful environment.
