Monastery of Santa Cruz Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Built in the 16C on the site of a 12C convent, this monastery is preceded by an imposing Renaissance portal by Nicolas Chanterene and Diogo de Castilho (1520). The church has a Manueline ceiling and walls decorated with azulejos representing the life of St Augustine. Note the masterfully-carved Renaissance pulpit by Nicolas Chanterne, and the fine gilded and carved wood stalls in the gallery. The pure and simple cloister of silence is Manueline in style.
