Monastery of the Saviour of Travanca - Amarante
Tradition says that Garcia Moniz, son of Moninho Viegas, the Gasco,
was the founder of the Monastery of the Saviour of Travanca in the
second half of the 11th century.
Throughout the Middle Ages, Travanca played a relevant part in the economic, political and religious control of the region, either by donations or the zealous administration of its assets.
