Founded in 1139, this was the first monastery to be erected by the Order of the Cistercians in the whole Iberian Peninsula. Its grandiosity is still to be seen nowadays, highlighted by current restoring works. The three-nave church stands out for its lavishly decorated interior in gilt carved wood, chairs, paintings (Gaspar Vaz and Grão Vasco), 17th and 18th century tiles, as well as sacristy’s painted dome.
