The Convent of Sandelgas, erected in Lower Mondego in the seventeenth century, embraced the nuns of the Third Rule of St. Francis of Assisi.
We are here to hold most amazing wedding - the wedding that you always dreamed of.
The new building of rectangular plant, was torn by multiple windows and doors that contributed to give life to the facade, avoiding the monotony. From the harsh architectural modesty of the building, which in fact met Franciscan poverty, the portal of the church emerges as a hymn of glory to the stone of Ançã, dating back to the third quarter of the 17th century.
In the middle of the leafy cedar grove, not far from the convent, some steps allow access to the so-called nuns' fountain below ground level. A few meters away, stands the fountain of St. John in which a niche with Ionic columns houses the sculpture of the Saint in stone of Ançã. They decorate the fountain wall, plaid tiles from the 17th century. To top off this small architectural ensemble, lies a stone cross.
