The Faith Woods

José Ramos

Lisbon - Alfragide, Portugal

Artist's Description

These woods whisper so loudly, and grow with such a brute force unto me, that no matter what, all I can do is to retreat to contemplation…

History and facts:
“The Convent of Capuchos of Sintra is one of the many examples of 16th century religious piety in Portugal and became known for the extreme simplicity of its construction. Built on a very small scale with cells and dormitory lined with cork and a chapel whose vault is formed by rock itself.
The Convent followed the principle of universal fraternity and brotherhood of the Franciscan monks. The inhabitants belonged to the Province of Arrábida (South of Lisbon), of the Order of Friars Minor Regular and Observant (Grey Friars).
