Cárquere, the pantheon of the Resendes lineage, has a few elements from its original Romanesque structure: a tower and a crevice on the pantheon. Here we find one of the most peculiar themes in the Portuguese Romanesque style: the beak-heads. Although the Church's interior grew based on a medieval structure, it is the result of the Gothic and Mannerist interventions that left us the chancel's ribbed vault, as well as the main and north lateral portals. This Monastery is part of the Route of the Romanesque.
