Igreja Matriz de Barcelos

This is a transition temple presenting some influences of both styles, Romanic and Gothic with several transformations that took place during the 16th and 17th centuries. The doorway has four archivolts with eight small columns settled in capitals and the walls are covered with glazed tiles panels representing scenes from the Virgin life. It is worthy to mention the chapel of the Holly Sacrament golden carved from the seventeen hundreds and the main chapel with two valuable sculptures, one from Our Lady of Assunção in baroque style, and the other representing Our Lady of Franqueira.
