Convento da Arrabida, N379-1, Setubal 2925-000 Portugal
The Convent of Our Lady of Arrábida, which belonged to the Franciscan Province of Arrábida, is half hidden among the trees of the south slope of the Serra da Arrábida, facing the sea, in the council of Setúbal. This 16th century building was once a Franciscan convent. Today it is included in the Arrábida Natural Park. The five round towers above the cliff were probably used for solitary meditation.
The foundation of a convent in the Serra da Arrábida dates from the end of 1538-1539, when Dom João de Lencastre 1st Duke of Aveiro promised to Friar Martinho (Martín de Santa Maria Benavides), an Andalusian barefoot friar of the Order of Saint Francis, his desire to lead an eremitical life dedicated exclusively to Our Lady.
