A convent from the 12th century was almost totally destroyed, only the church being saved.
After a long period of recuperation, it is now open to the public, with beautiful details from the 17th and 18th century.
Only 5 to 10 minutes away from Alcobaça it's an easy visit (with Atlantis nearby, to see glassblowers at work).
For many years neglected, this monastery is very beautiful. The church and sacristy are completely covered with tiles from the XVI and XVII centuries, in a surprisingly good condition. The monastery was recently restored and it is a nice and quick visit.
