Convento de São Bento de Castris

The walls of the Manueline style church are covered in 18C azulejos illustrating the life of St Bernard, and the Gothic capitulary hall is decorated with some Renaissance elements. The 16C Portuguese-Moorish style cloister has preserved its originality and elegance.
