The Church and the Benedictine Convent of the Monastery of Santo André of Rendufe constitute a remarkable patrimonial set. SOPSEC carried out an in-depth survey and diagnosis of the state, in particular the Church, whose behavior followed for several years, as well as the rehabilitation design of the Church and part of the Convent, involving consolidation and reinforcement of foundations, structural consolidation, as well as resolution of pathologies associated with infiltration, drainage and raising dump ascension. Although the designs phase was completed a few years ago, it is only now that work is expected to begin.
