About
From the monastery of Benedictine nuns, only the old Church remains; it was built in the 13th century and Romanesque influence is very present in its decorations: the beak-heads of the triumphal arch, two men with a single head, serpents and mermaids. Being a rich monastery, it was coveted by many people who wanted to achieve prestige and power through it. From the Resendes lineage to the Pintos', its valuable heritage is the legacy of a path that came to an end in the 16th century. This Monastery is part of the Route of the Romanesque.
