Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The male Cistercian monastery of São João de Tarouca was the first Cistercian monastery built in Portugal. It was founded in 1140 and its construction started in 1154. One of the most preserved monastic buildings is the church, which preserves its Cistercian Romanesque style. The sacristy, built in 1704, keeps one of the most impressive portuguese collections of Delft like tiles. From the remaining monastic area, the extensive archaeological excavations made between 1998 and 2007, allowed to identify the original medieval monastic dependences.
