Convento dos Agostinhos

Founded in the reign of King Afonso III, more precisely in 1267, it was dedicated to Nossa Senhora da Graça. Its destiny was to be the pantheon of the Dukes of Bragança. The façade of the monastery and the church stands out with its tall bell towers and large windows. The church's nave is severe and almost without decorations, and the side walls of the chancel contain six mausoleums of Dukes of Bragança. Six chapels open onto the nave where the baroque altarpiece, tile covering and sculptures stand out. A highlight for the beautiful 17th-century cloister that gives access to various dependencies.
