Mosteiro de São Salvador de Travanca

This is one of the most known Romanic Monasteries. It is rather well conserved with rich sculptures elements and a high crenel tower with a bell which doorway displays in its tympanum an Agnus Dei. The church main doorway has four archivolts, in which the arches are settled in worked capitals being topped by a row of modillions. It has a crenel bell tower to which one enters by a doorway with two archivolts sculpted in low relief. On the inside with three naves it is possible to find four bays, a rectangular main chapel and two rounds apsis. It stands out the coenobites house restored in 1939.
