About
Ancede is the legacy of an important economic and cultural centre; it was a Church and Monastery of the Canons Regular, after having belonged to the Dominicans. It became an important territory in 1141 and, from the old Romanesque Church, only the rose window and part of the chancel's lateral walls remain. In the churchyard, The Chapel of the Lord of the Good Delivery is a remarkable theatre where small stages narrate the life of Christ; it is an example of the importance of this Monastery during the Baroque period. This Monastery is part of the Route of the Romanesque.

the monks have developed the area with a lot of cultures such as maiz and wine.The most important work was the construction of the Chapel of the Lord of Bom Despacho, raised in the vast churchyard, adjacent to the wall that holds the wineries and other buildings for agricultural use.
