The #convent is remarkable for the extreme #poverty of its #construction and the extensive use of #cork in the protection and #decoration of its tiny spaces, thus embodying the ideals of the #Order of St. #Francis of #Assisi: the search for #spiritual perfection by removing #oneself from the #world and #renouncingthe #pleasures associated with earthly #life. The extremely small convent was #built in respect for #harmony between the human construction and the pre-existing #naturalelements: the #divine construction. Its #rustic appearance and great austerity are indissociable from the surrounding #vegetation, since the building is completely #integrated into the natural environment, to the extent that enormous granite boulders have been incorporated into its construction"
