  • A wonderful example of sacred art, church with gold wire and a wide variety of Saints, Angels and wonderful details. The cloister has a beautiful Fountain.

  • Beautifully preserved national monument and open every day from 8 to 12 hours and the 15 to 7:00 pm. In addition to the main altar in Baroque estiló, enjoy also the altar of St. Benedict and the altar of the blessed also in gilt. It is one of the few churches that still keeps the bars separating the worship of the friars of the people, although currently are open. The cloister, the high choir and sacristy are also worthy of a visit. In front of the altar of St. Benedict's of St. Mary Magdalene, patron saint of the parish. However the monastery, although Benedictine, was dedicated to Santo Tirso on the façade of the Church and the high altar. The your story is told in the various paintings that are next to the main altar. It is worth visiting the monastery, but also the surrounding space and see the monastery across the river Ave.

  • Historical monument of the small but beautiful city of Santo tirso, I had the honour and the privilege to go watch a wedding ceremony perfect everything, chorus, bride and groom, guests, flowers, everything, but the honor of there marriage isn't for everyone. Lucky ones. The monastery is the main frame.
