Spend time inside the monastery (rococo church...) beautifully restored, and then even more time in the garden. Two walks : the short one is 45 minutes, the long one is 1h30... If you can, sleep at the Hospedaria.

It is a little bit difficult to get to the Mosteiro de Sao Martinho de Tibaes without a car but well worth a visit. One could spend all day here wandering through the monastery and the beautiful gardens.

a whole day it's not enough to visit and see all the beauties of this ancient Monastery. You will find history and will be able to enjoy the gardens and forest which surrounds the great Benedictine Monastery.
