For more than 50 years, Caparica was, for me, no more than an ugly village by the longest beach around Lisbon.
This year I found Capuchos, and noticed that there’s something more than the “Costa” in Caparica. It’s never too late to learn.
In the cliffs overlooking “Costa da Caparica” beach, with great sights, there’s a convent dating from the 16th century, now used by the municipality to cultural and social events.
Restored in 1952, it received a carved altarpiece and new tiles representing St. Anthony’s sermons.
It is surrounded by a small but nice and refreshing garden.

Exhibitions in Capuchos convent
It is not an outstanding destination, nor a must see, but, if you need a break in a sunny day on the beach, why not a small detour to this convent?
We were there with rain, and wished to go back under a bright sun, when the sights will be different, of course, and, inside, with any kind of weather, maybe you’ll find an interesting exhibition, as we did.
Well, we were invited to the opening…
