Included in the National Reading Plan, “The Santa Maria de Salzedas Monastery: the ants, the jay and the stones” tells the story of a monastery, almost as old as Portugal, and the legend associated with it.
The story goes that the current building of the Monastery is due to the diligence of worker ants who opposed its location and primitive construction.
Every night, an army of ants would undo the hard work of the monks carrying the stones and erecting walls…
Between legend and reality, this children’s tale, the first of three, takes the reader to the Santa Maria de Salzedas Monastery during its initial inception.
