Monastery of the Saviour of Paço de Sousa - Penafiel
The foundation of this monastic community dates back to the 10th
century and is considered the origin of this Benditine Monastery. The
will of abbot Randulfo, in 994, who escaped from a monastery to the
south, during the incursions of Almançor, contains the first references
to this Monastery.
The foundation of the Monastery credits Trutesendo Galindes and his wife Anímia, who followed the peninsular monastic habits and adopted the Rule of Saint Benedict, during the abbacy of Sisnando, between 1085 and 1087.
