Segredos do Convento - Nossa Senhora da Esperança

As the Festa do Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres approaches one can view the procession and festivities on May 13, directly on the site , and even though it is in Portuguese, one can learn about the activities and the organization behind the feast.
Recognized as largest religious event in the Azores, take a look at the  video below, to get a preview of the monastery of Nossa Senhora da Esperança, whose nuns are the caretakers of the statue of the Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres. It is a rare opportunity to see how these nuns live, their living quarters and interior of the monastery, seldom visited by outsiders.
