In Odivelas you will find the Mosteiro de Odivelas – Convento de São Dinis, the construction of which began in 1295 on the orders of King Dinis. The story has it that the King made a vow to St Louis after having escaped from an attack by a bear. Originally, the Monastery was purely Gothic in style, but after successive restorations, it has integrated other styles, in particular Manueline in the cloister, Renaissance in the fountain, and Baroque in the chapels, porches and tiles.King Dinis is buried in a fine Gothic tomb in the Monastery.
