I’m Sienna Sally, I’m portuguese. I love music, I love singing. I adore animals. My family and my friends are very important to me. I studied arts and started drawing tattoos. I am honest with those who relate to me, so they always know what i’m all about. In what I can I always try to help those who I love. I like being around people that I love. But I also like to be alone.
My passion is music since I was young. But I started to dedicate myself to this when I was 17 years old. My first band was Darkside Of Innocence. I was the female vocals and I recorded 2 albuns, the first one named “Infernum Liberus Est” and the second one “Xenogenesis”; I have been there for 2 years . After that I made a project called Glitcherry. It was a solo project without any clearcut style of music. Also, along with some friends I created a band called Past Undone we released 2 EP’s “Time Lapse” and “See You Tomorrow”. I did a collaboration on the album “The Coldest Sun” with The Autist and now I’m vocalist of Aura’s Seers.

Initially designed as a small convent for 13 monks, Mafra’s project suffered successive changes, ending in a huge building of approximately 40.00 m2, with all the facilities for 300 Franciscans monks.
The King ensured the support of the convent by paying all the expenses from his own “pocket”. Monks were given fees twice a year, at Christmas and at St. John’s day. The fees consisted of tobacco, paper, linen and burel cloth for the habits. Each brother received two habits that he had to wash and mend himself. 120 wine barrels, 70 olive oil barrels or 600 cows, for instance, were spent each year in the Convent.
Built in limestone from the region – Sintra, Pêro Pinheiro and Mafra – the Basilica has the form of a Latin cross and is 58.5 m long and 43 m wide. The dome is 65m high, with a 13m diameter. It was the first dome ever built in Portugal.
In the main chapel a painting by Francesco Trevisani represents the Virgin, Jesus and St. Anthony, to whom the church is dedicated. The marble retables of the side chapels, Holy Family (south) and Blessed Sacrament (north) and the six collateral chapels are attributed to Alessandro Giusti from the Mafra school of sculpture, and his disciples.
Nearby was the fence garden, with an orchard, several water tanks and four ballgame fields for the monks’ recreation, one for the ring game and two to play a traditional game called “laranjinha”. In the early 19th century, during the Peninsular War, the convent was occupied by French troops and later by British allied troops. With the extinction of religious orders in Portugal, on 30th May 1834, the convent was and has been, until the present day, successively occupied by several military regiments. Since 1890 it is occupied by the army and is today the headquaters of the School of the Arms.
