Property Of The Week

27.09.21

This historical 35-hectare estate has its origins back in the 10th century, and it’s older than the foundation of the Kingdom of Portugal. This old Monastery it’s in perfect condition and it was converted into one of the most exclusive private residences in the country. The Monastery, the several constructions in the property, the expansive plot, amazing views, direct river access (500 meters of riverfront), and natural beauty of the region grant this estate of an unparallel potential.

The Monastery of Vila Boa does Bispo, classified as a National Monument since 1977. Located on a slope on the left bank of the Tâmega, Vila Boa do Bispo impresses with its monumentality. These dimensions can be explained by the importance it held throughout the medieval and modern periods, highlighting the attention paid to it by the lordship, namely the Gascos (or Ribadouros) lineage.

Although profoundly altered in the modern period, the Romanesque remains help to understand the historical richness of this Monastery. On the main façade, the two blind arches that flank the portal stand out, which are very original and feature a characteristic composition of the Romanesque style of the Braga-Rates axis. These elements and others scattered throughout the structure place the Romanesque construction of Vila Boa do Bispo between the 12th and 13th centuries the interior is marked by the baroque spirit, which through various techniques and materials created a particularly monumental and luminous space. Under the coffered ceilings of the chancel, a set of mural paintings from the 16th century was identified, showing the culture of the Canons Regular of St. Augustine.

The origins of the monastery of Vila Boa do Bispo go back to the last years of the 10th century or the early years of the following century. Until the second half of the 12th century, the history of this monastery is shrouded in legends and dubious attributions. The church that remains today dates from the end of the 12th century or the beginning of the following, like a large part of our Romanesque style.

The Monastery of Vila Boa does Bispo is currently on the market for €31M.
