Carboeiro Monastery

The monastery of San Lourenzo de Carboeiro is one of the most outstanding architectural works of late Romanesque, transition to Gothic, in Galicia.

The Carboeiro Monastery: churches that were built by Gonzalo and Teresa, Counts of Deza in the year 936, have a Latin cross plan with three naves and another transept. In an archivolt is the representation of the Portico of Glory, with the Ancients of the Apocalypse. Considered a jewel of Galician Romanesque-ogival, its architectural importance was highlighted as “unsurpassed by any monastery of its type and period”.
