Photographer's Note

And here's another post of the Monastery of Seiça, now in ruins.
This Monastery existed already in the 12th century and still in the same century it was inhabited by the monks of the Cister Order, that had also the Monastery of Alcobaça. Protected by the crown during the Middle Age, it was abolished by King John III but a few years later, still in the 16th century, King Sebastian gave it back to the Order of Cister.
It was rebuilt in the 16th/17th centuries, following a project of Mateus Rodrigues.
Today it's abandoned and the most interesting part is still the big church in Mannerist style, that we can see here! Unfortunately, a big part of it has disappeared because the building was adapted to become a factory in the 19th century.

What we see here is a detail of the church.
