Romantic Blue

Convento da Conceição, Beja

Now this is a cloister I’d happily sit in for a few hours. It can be found inside Convento da Conceição in Beja, Alentejo, the convent that was the home of Mariana Alcoforado, the Portuguese nun who became famous for her love letters to Marquis de Chantilly.

PS if you haven’t already do go and wish the Birthday Boy a Happy Birthday!

  1. What a beautiful spot, Becky. The cloisters of churches often hold a few surprises, but I think this is the prettiest I’ve seen (virtually).
    I really must add the Alentejo to my list for next year.
