In the very deep countryside of Portugal there is a masterpiece of medieval architecture. It is a monastery in the Lorvão village. It was built somewhen between the VI and the VII centuries being one of the most important of the kingdom untill the end of the age of the discoveries when started it’s decline and abandon.
Later in the XX century the monastery was fully restored by the Dr. Bissaya Barreto as a psychiatric hospital.
Unfortunately this is the best shot I have from the 20min I have been there…
