XVI); a capelinha de N.ª S.ª da Conceição (1641); a antiga Livraria, de tecto pintado a fresco, com alusões à Deusa Minerva e às Belas-Artes (1708), e a torre laterna do cruzeiro, valorizada pelas figuras símbolo-heráldicas esculpidas em terracota policroma (1729)."

"Highlights of this monumental and artistic setting are: the Renaissance cloister, the harmonious double galleries of the Tuscan order; the Hall of Acts, with its baroque facade with allegorical figures, is carved in local marble. Within there remains a precious polychromic lining of ceramic tiles (ca. 1600); the tile panels depict various themes like historical, biblical, mythological, literary and poetic (Virgil, Plato, Archimedes, Aristotle), Humanism and the natural laws, that cover all the walls of the classrooms of the John the fifth period (1744-49); the cloister and the refectory of the brothers (sixteenth century), the chapel of Nossa S. da Conceição (1641), the old bookstore, a fresco painted ceiling, with allusions to the Goddess Minerva and the Fine Arts (1708) and the lantern tower, valued by its heraldic symbolic figures, carved in polychrome terracotta (1729)."
