Portalegre, Monastery of Sao Bernardo, founder´s tomb

D. Jorge de Melo (1572-1548), the last Bishop of Guarda, who ruled the huge diocese from this city until it split, creating the Portalegre autonomous one, he is buried in the huge tomb, with a lying statue .

He received from Philip I, in 1581, a comment as witty as it was accurate: a large cage for a small bird. This is, without a doubt, one of the jewels of the city's heritage that awaits its deserved appreciation.

Renaissance sculpture attributed to Nicolau de Chanterenne that includes one of the largest and most sumptuous Renaissance tombs; the imaginary of the tomb is interpreted as an evocation of the love life of the founder, D. Jorge de Melo, Bishop of Guarda, religious of heretical life, sinful and persistent in the eyes of the church of his time, which gets to be excommunicated
