Visiting the village of Santo Tirso.
Sep 2020
The monastery is located on the left bank of the river Ave, in the lower part of the city of Santo Tirso. It was founded by D. Unisco Godiniz and her husband Abunazar Lovesendes, first lord of Maia and ancestor of this family, in 978, according to a document published by D. António Caetano de Sousa.
In the 15th century, the monastic church was built for the benefit of Martim Gil, count of Barcelos. This church still has some archaeological remains.
The current parish church was built in 1659 - 79, with a project by Frei João Turriano, son of a Milanese architect, Leonardo Turriano. The date of 1679 is inscribed on the eardrum, which hypothetically represents the end of the construction of the church.
The monastery has been classified as a National Monument since 1982.
You can visit the church, and the other part is a school now, with some change you can park near the church.

Small City with history

I lived in Santo Tirso for several years... so my opinion in here could be a little influenced by... anyway, STS is a small and quiet city with some nice atractions. The Mosteiro is one of them.
