Among the high, wooded hills of the Svratka valley, in the foothills of the scenic Czech-Moravian Highlands, the Porta Coeli convent has been standing for over three quarters of a millennium. In 1233, it was founded by Queen Konstancie, widow of King Přemysl Otakar I. for the female branch of the Cistercian Order. The historically valuable Gothic-Romanesque Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary was consecrated in the year 1239.

Today, the convent complex with its early Gothic core ranks among the most important historical monuments in the Czech Republic, and the richly decorated western portal of its church is a rare example of its kind in the central Europe.
