Situated at the heart of Guimarães historical centre in Oliveira Square, this Romanic church was rebuilt by D. João I as a way of celebrating the victory in Aljubarrota Battle (1385). The Chapter Room and two cloister wings show Romanic mudejar elements, standing out as the greatest granite set of this sort in the country. It has the only Gothic ceiling painting collection in Portugal, revealing an Italian Byzantine influence. Also worth highlighting are the 16th century chairs with Neoclassical backs.
