Mosteiro de São Pedro de Cête
Romanesque monument, one of the oldest in Portugal. The monastery, only after centuries of degradation, the Church, the cloister and chapter room pré-manuelino. The physiognomy of the semiguerreira conventual Church, with its Tower side arches, its thick walls and giant that flank the portal, gives it a religious function and, at the same time, defensive. Inside, the highlight goes to the depth and height of the nave, as well as to the robustness of the granite pumpkin of the chancel and the well preserved trunks for coffin of noble Knights. It should also be mentioned a vestige of a mural depicting s. Sebastião set with arrows, dated probably from the second quarter of the 16th century. Classified as a national monument since 1910.
