Mosteiro de Grijó

The primitive monastery, called Monastery of São Salvador de Grijó, was founded in 922 in the place of Muraceses. It was only in the year 1112 that it was moved to its current location. In 1770 the convent was extinguished, passing its assets to the Convent of Mafra. Of note are the gilded carvings and the 18th century tiles in the chancel, as well as the pipe organ, from the end of the 18th century and beginning of the 19th century. Also noteworthy is the tomb of D. Rodrigo Sanches, classified as a National Monument.
