This convent produces everything it needs for its monks. They don't go out. There are two distinct monasteries. This is the one inside the walls of the fortress. The monks that live here are in "Clausura" system which means that they dont get out of the monastery.
Women can't visit this monastery. To go here you have to go direction Arraiolos all turn right when you see the road sign.
They sell a very tasty wine (from what people tell me, i can't really tell you my opinion on this matter cos i dont drink alcohol).

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
