It's a good place to go at the end of the day. There isn't many things to see in the place, but the Praying with Gregorian Choir at the dusk it's beautiful and touching.

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

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.

Thank Keliton S
