Long Description:
[PT]
Mosteiro beneditino feminino fundado em 1510, de que resta a torre manuelina, alguns capitéis do clastro e um portal, deslocado. Do final do século XVI datam ainda o revestimento a azulejos enxaquetados ma igreja e no coro alto e os cadeirais do coro principal.
A igreja foi reconstruida entre 1707 e 1737 em estilo barroco, cuja marca ficou, entre outros, na talha dos retábulos e do púpito, no cadeiral acharoado do coro alto e na decoração, altares e sepulturas da sala do capítulo, hoje sacristia.
Nacionalizado, foi por esta Comgregação transformado em lar de idosos desde 1905. Nessa altura a torre foi deslocada destruindo o mirante e construido um equilibrado edifício de traça ecléctica dominada por um gracioso neoclassico.
