This church is pretty but nothing that compares to many of the other ones that we visited. You should stop and look in however for just a couple minutes.

This inside of this church is just as pretty as the outside. Be sure to take a peek into the cloister.

I was deeply moved by the iconic carvings and art found within this intimate and beautiful Church, with a Romanesque arched nave. Situated on the Largo da Oliveira Square, this is all that remains of the Monastery that the Castelo de Guimaraes was built to...More
