This front door to the St Francisco Convent in Alenquer was photographed by Francisco Ourique. The convent was founded in 1222 by D.Sancha daughter of D.Sancho I of Portugal. The city of Alenquer was conquered by the moors in the XII century and had its first charter in the following century. The region around the town is famous for its wines, esp. the whites. It has two different delimitations but both confined to the municipality that gives name to it. The vineyards form great continuous spots, following the relief and developing along hillsides and valleys.
