Church of São Gonçalo Monastery : Michelin's recommendations

This Church, built in 1540 has a side portal with three levels of small Italian Renaissance columns and is crowned by a Baroque pediment. Near the portal, you will notice the statues of the four Kings who reigned during the period of the church's construction. The inside, remodelled in the 18C, houses a lovely piece of Baroque gilt-wood furniture and, more importantly, an organ case from the early 17C. In a chapel on the left you will find the tomb of St Gonzalve (who died in 1259).
