Mosteiro de Fiães / Igreja de Santo André
The church remains from the monastic complex, which retains
interesting architectural features. On the front, the portal with four archivolts is the primitive one and in the upper area, redone in the 17th century, São Bernardo, the founder of Cistercian, the Lady of the Assunção and São Bento, surmounted by the coat of arms of the Order, keep us company in this place isolated but superb. The head of the temple is divided into quadrangular chapels, revealing the typically Cistercian architecture. The interior, with 3 naves, without a transept, was greatly transformed in the modern era. In the monastic dependencies that developed to the south and of which nothing now remains, D. Filipa de Lencastre stayed when she came from England to marry D. João I.
