New convento

Convento do Beato offers spacious and elegant spaces for unforgettable events. A historical site, nine rooms and infinite possibilities – all in a single incomparable location, which stands out from its surroundings.

Convento from
the past

Convent of Beato’s history dates back to the 15th century when Queen Isabel ordered a hermitage to be built. In the 16th century, Friar António da Conceição, later known as Blessed António [Beato António], encouraged the construction of the Convent over the hermitage. The story goes that with just 7 pennies, which they received as alms, they managed to kickstart the construction of the magnificent Convent. The magnificent building became known as ‘Convento do Beato’. Soon after, the entire civil parish where the Convent was built became known as the Civil Parish of Beato.
