Capela das Pereiras (Chapel of Pereiras)

This temple was originally ordered to be built in 1525, by Pedro Afonso Fiúza and his wife Catarina Madriz, replacing a small hermitage in that place. The architectonic characteristics that are presently seen result from a deep reform dated from 1818. In a complete condition of degradation, the Chapel of Pereiras was donated to the Town Hall by its owners in 1979, with the last construction works dating from 1998, when the new choir and support premises were built in order to accomplish cultural events, the bell tower remaining unfinished as it had always happened throughout its history.

In its interior, there is a part of the altarpiece of the XIX century, the remains of the degradation it was subject to for years.
