Monastery is under construction / renovation. Peaceful site. Gregorian chants daily at 5:45pm. Not a tourist site, but rather a place of religious worship.

It's a quiet place, where you can visit the shop, coffee and the chapel. The sisters sell breads, coffees and small gifts. At the end of the day you can listen the sister signing. You can do everything in less than an hour.

It's worth visiting if you are religious, as it is an spiritual place, with a beautiful chapel and moments of pray with the monjas (it is worth to attent the canto gregoriano moment, at 17:45). There is a small shop and the products made by...More

It seems to be wonderful place, unfortunately we arrived during a renovation period. The Gregorian Choir is beautiful.

If you wanna stay in a peaceful place, with a beautiful scenery, gardens, lake, and on Saturday morning when I visited, I attended the Mass, and the mums sang gregorian songs...wow...amazing...I´ve heard they have a crafts store but we did not visit in the occasion.

A simple catholic church with a neat, clean and organized yard. Other than this, nothing see or to do.

A very quiet place for peace. If you like Gregorian chant go in the afternoon, they begin exactly 16:45 (no entrance after that). Good to talk to the nuns too!

The Monastery of St. Joseph (São João) is a neat, peaceful place. Not a tourist attraction, really. You can walk around the grounds and the garden, shop bread, pastries, jams and handicraft made by the nuns, visit the chapel and listen to their Gregorian chants....More

Just a beautiful place where you can take some pictures. The Gregorian Chant is beautiful sung by nuns. Independent of your religion, it's nice mainly for who is Catholic.

I love monasteries... I'm not religious but I find solace in these places... it's just so calming... we walked onto the grounds and it's like you're miles away from the city... when we visited it was the hour when the nuns would be praying and...More
