DOWNLOAD REPORT


The Convento de São José is a sober building from the first half of the 18th century. It was built with the purpose of serving the collection of women and the reception of children, having functioned for about a century under the guidance of a religious order of mendicant nuns. The exhibition wheel dates from this period, which can still be seen at the entrance. After the extinction of the religious orders (1834), the building was adapted to a girls' education college and guided by a group of Dominican nuns, functioning until the establishment of the Republic. At the end of the 80s of the 20th century, the municipality carried out the recovery and adaptation of the buildings so that, from 1993 onwards, it became one of the poles of cultural activity in Lagoa. Its most emblematic elements are, in addition to the wheel, the belvedere tower, with lattice windows, the chapel, whose altar bears an image of St. Joseph, the cloister, in the center of which is an octagonal cistern.
