Spend time inside the monastery (rococo church...) beautifully restored, and then even more time in the garden. Two walks : the short one is 45 minutes, the long one is 1h30... If you can, sleep at the Hospedaria.

It is a little bit difficult to get to the Mosteiro de Sao Martinho de Tibaes without a car but well worth a visit. One could spend all day here wandering through the monastery and the beautiful gardens.

This was one of the highlights of my trip. The monastery is beautifully presented and restored. The major part is really simple, quite beautiful and austere and the other part, the church is just out of this world. If you love churches, cupids, sculpture,vaulted ceilings.......More
