Neoclassical splendour in the heart of the Ribeira Sacra
The origins of the monastery date back to the 9th c., although the building you see today was built between 1626 and 1802 in the Neoclassical Baroque style, replacing its medieval predecessor, which was falling into ruins.
The long construction process led to the complex including Gothic elements such as the interior structure, along with Renaissance features such as portal and Neoclassical elements such as the splendid cloistered area, making it a unique monument and a setting where visitors can dream of past glories.
