The extinction of convents in Portugal in the 19th century marked the transformation of many religious buildings. In Porto, some disappeared completely, leaving only their name. The piece of the month of November is the result of this context and originates from the convent of Monchique, built in the 16th century and located in Miragaia, between Rua da Restauração and Rua Nova da Alfândega. Little remains of the original building. The Manueline portal shown gave access to the convent chapel and is currently on display in the Rainha D. Amélia Velodrome Garden, at the Soares dos Reis National Museum.
