Photographer's Note

This is a detail that I like in the old "Convento dos Monges" - it can be found on one of the walls and what we see on the right is the corner of the corridor. This is an old convent completely in ruins, situated in Serra de Monfurado, between Santiago do Escoural and Montemor-o-Novo. It was founded in the beginning of the 18th century by a group of Hermits of St. Paul who lived in the area. Damaged by the earthquake of 1755, it was definitely abandoned with the extiction of the religious orders in the 19th century.
Today it's in ruins but some remains of its magnificence can still be found there.
