Convento da Arrabida
Portugal

Wikipedia: "O Convento da Nossa Senhora da Arrábida, que pertenceu à Província de Arrábida, fica meio escondido entre as árvores da vertente sul da serra, virada para o mar. Esta construção do século XVI foi outrora um mosteiro franciscano. As cinco torres redondas sobre a falésia foram provavelmente usadas para meditação solitária.

A fundação de um convento na serra da Arrábida data de fins de 1538-1539, quando D. João de Lencastre 1º Duque de Aveiro prometeu a Frei Martinho, um religioso castelhano da Ordem de S. Francisco, cumprir o seu desejo de fazer uma vida eremita, dedicada exclusivamente a Nossa Senhora. O duque cedeu a serra da Arrábida, onde já se existia uma ermida aberta ao culto em que se venerava a imagem conhecida por Nossa Senhora da Arrábida.

Aqui viveu Frei Agostinho da Cruz (Ponte da Barca, 1540 - Setúbal, 1619), frade poeta português, irmão do poeta Diogo Bernardes, que escreveu elegias e sonetos onde a serra está bem presente. Nascido Agostinho Pimenta, adoptou o nome Frei Agostinho da Cruz aos vinte e um anos de idade quando se tornou frade capuchinho. Depois de passar pelo Convento de Santa Cruz em Sintra e pelo Convento de Ribamar na Lourinhã, entrou para o Convento da Arrábida onde esteve vinte anos. As suas obras foram divulgadas só no século XVIII, quando em 1771 foi publicada a colectânea designada "Obras"."

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
