Jesus Convent is unavoidable when we are referring to monuments in Setúbal. Built in the 14th Century, is the first “rehearsal” of Manuelino architectural style. That is why you should include it in your sights and attractions spots in Setúbal.
No to be missed: twisted columns made from brecha (Arrábida Mountain’s stone), ribbed ceiling and three vaulted aisles.
This landmark was the stage of Treaty of Tordesillas. Here in 1494 Portugal and Spain ratified the splitting of the world.
Take note that this attraction in Setúbal is NaTional Monument since 1910 and since 2020 new garden has just been done.
