Notes NOTES: This complex of buildings date back to the second half of the 12th century with the construction of the Knights Templar Church (Charola). A nave and cloister was added in the early 15th century and more extensive additions were added from 1510 onwards by the Arruda brothers, Diego and Francisco and Joao de Castilho.
