Courtyard and corridors at Convento de São Francisco in Tomar

Once again another indoors set of photos, shot at the Convent of São Francisco. This convent is at Varzea Grande in Tomar and I went there with the purpose of seeing the Matchstick Museum Aquiles de Mota Lima, which contains possibly the biggest collection of match sticks and boxes in the world. Unfortunately it was closed at the time and for one reason or another I didn’t come back.
