BRAGA – Mosteiro de Tibães – Patio

The Benedictine Monastery of Tibães was one of the most grandiose in the country (with four cloisters) and richly decorated according to the plans of Manuel Álvares. Among other points of interest, there is the gold-leafed carving, the retables and Baroque adornment of André Soares (1750), the Baroque organ (1786) and the examples of tiling. It was at that time a truly practical school in the decorative arts holding great influence over Portuguese artistic trends of the 17th and 18th centuries. The monastery´s grandeur is set off by the surrounding grounds that include a 18th century chapel dedicated to Saint Benedict.
