Convento da Nossa Senhora da Arrábida in Setúbal. At the heart of Arrábida, half way down the south slope, we find the Convent of Santa Maria Arrábida, founded 1542 by a Franciscan rigorist order.

This is the Pantheon of the House of Bragança (1640 to 1910 Dynasty), where all great Kings and Queens from Portugal´s history rest. Noteworthy are the tombs of King João IV, King Carlos, Prince Luis Filipe and Queen D. Amélia. Not forgetting D. Catarina de Bragança, Queen of England that started the “English habit” of drinking Tea. For this you will have to go to the Church and Monastery of São Vicente de Fora…, one more location in Lisbon that sadly is little known and visited. #Lisbon…
