Community Support

In the heart of Bairro Alto neighborhood sits a hidden secret old convent with a beautiful history and a small, but beautiful, cloister. The nuns take care of the house, but mainly take care of 30 handicapped girls that have been abandoned by their families. Known for their famous jams (shhh – it’s a secret recipe), today you will join one of the nuns with a trip to the market to buy supplies, followed by a fun couple of hours making their exquisite jam. The jams are then sold by the nuns to help take care of the girls and their Convent.

To Know Before You Go

  • Portugal is ideal for children of all ages. Lisbon offers much in terms of fun activities. The beaches in the south are filled with family resorts perfect for a few days in the sun.
  • Spring and fall are the best times to visit weather-wise (although September is very busy, especially in the Douro Valley for the grape harvest).  The summer is also very good weather; however, the crowds are much larger.
  • A valid passport is required with six months before expiration for entry into Portugal.
