  • The home is very special, the guide is particularly strange his reasons are legitimate but surprising. The Portuguese economy is catastrophic and felt it even in historic and religious sites. The works are very very poorly preserved, a disgrace for the Portuguese heritage! It is hoped that one day the means of protections and renovations will be made to the magnificent works of this monastery. However, I recommend this tour.

  • A beautiful monument forgotten in the Valley of Lorvão, with a typical mountain surroundings. The interior of the Church is taken care of with paintings and sculptures Museum-quality and spectacular collection that deserves a visit. Excellent acoustics that transforms the concerts in a show not to be missed

  • In these beautiful landscapes, you get in front of this huge building. Impressive by its size, feel free to get inside and admire the sculpted doors and all that wood, one of the stalls in rosewood and walnut. Formerly, monastery, now a psychiatric hospital. Across the street you will find a nice pastry with a small selection of excellent homemade pastries and the Lorvao cinnamon (to taste)
