convento de cristo, tomar portugal

Here are several field recording made during a recent visit to Portugal. These recordings were made in several different spaces throughout the Convent of the Order of Christ, inside well preserved castle of the Knights Templar. When the castle opens at 9:00 there are few people in the off season. For the sake of discreetness I used the internal mics of the Sony PCM-D50.


Small chapel off the first cloister (sounds of cleaning women)


Main cloister (water fountain and bird sounds)


Third cloister (with circling sparrows)
