The Road: 

Follow the path straight past the Monastery, and join the Rua da Lionesa. Here a large park will be on your right, and industry on your left. Keep straight and eventually cross over the Río Leça, at which point the name of the cobbled road changes to Rua Chantre....

History: 

The Romanesque monastery you see today was founded by the Order of St. Benedict in the late 10th century but was built in the vicinity of a Roman Temple dedicated to Jupiter.
