Alvaro Diogo is Baltasar's brother-in law (married to his sister Ines Antonia) who is one of Baltasar's childhood friends and is also a stonemason. Alvaro Diogo immediately takes Baltasar under his wing and finds for him employment at the building of the convent of Mafra when Baltasar and Blimunda return to Mafra, and from there stands as a constant form of support for the young couple.
