Description
Its construction began in 1657. The convent was designed to accommodate the Franciscan religious, newly - arrived in Santiago Island, which replaced the Jesuit mission in Cape Verde. Also functioned as a training center, it was here that the priests ministered and taught some classes crafts, workshops for that purpose existed in these facilities. The church, along with simple stroke, consists of a nave. 

The restoration work carried out in the years 2001/2002 with support from the Spanish Cooperation allowed the reuse of the church for various cultural activities (concerts, conferences and exhibitions).
