Convento de Santa Clara

Historic Building in Portalegre

Yet another of Portalegre’s hidden treasures, this former convent is now part of the municipal library, meaning you can freely wander around at will. It has an impressive cloister and a few azulejo-covered walls. Though the original convent dates to the 14th century, most of the structure dates from the 18th century, save for two wings of the cloister from the 15th century.
