It is one of the most ancient Cistercian monasteries in Portugal, situated east from Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo in the direction of Santa Maria de Aguiar Dam. Even though it presents a rather sober design, it is indeed a valuable testimony of primitive Cistercian architecture in the country. In the 12th and 13th century, the monastery was very prosperous; however the project remained unfinished because of the wars with Castile. The monumental complex includes a hotel.
