I don’t think it’s possible to visit inside this beautiful, historic 12th century building atm. It’s fantastically located and is a landmark on the coast. The ‘authorities’ are missing an opportunity to make something of this.

This was an interesting building, although it was closed. Unfortunately there are parts in a dilapidated state. I hope it gets a new destination, because the seaview is phenomenal.

Magnificent buildings set in a stunning location overlooking the harbour. Such a pity that most of the buildings are closed and in need of considerable repair. Church seems to be rarely open. Hope the restoration project comes to fruition.

If you want to go inside the church you can only visit @1130. Cost is €1 and you need to go to the tourist information office opposite.

Beautiful landscape. It´s a pity it is not open to the public and also it´s a pity that the woman who opens the church door is old and opens the church only twice in a day! For a place like this one is very bad....More

On the coastal road from Baiona to A Guarda you can't miss the Monastery as it rises out of the sea. Or you will pass it on foot on the Portuguese Way from Porto to Santiago de Compostela. It is not open to the public...More
