Sanfins Church was formerly part of a Benedictine monastery, existing in the year 1134. Today, only the Romanesque church has been preserved, dating from the second half of the twelfth century, with several renovations running into the thirteenth century. The rest of the building is in ruins, except for some small arches that still remain and are proof of the beauty of the previous Benedictine monastery. To reach the church of Sanfins you have two options: from Valença do Minho and up the Monte Faro, a route of about 11 km. Or, the shortest way, is from Monçao. The striking thing about this tour is the spectacular scenery as it sits in relative isolation and with stunning views of the valley and the Baixo Miño. The interior of the church is completely empty and it is said that the monastery was occupied by the old Jesuits back in the sixteenth century.
