Igreja Matriz de Chaves / Igreja de Santa Maria Maior

This church is mediaeval, mannerist and late baroque with a longitudinal plan composed by three naves and five ranks. It was built during the middle age, probably in the 12th century above the wrecks from previous temples. From the mediaeval period it stills conserves the bell tower, the portico and some sculptures. On the interior it stands out the Chapel of the Holly attached to the main chapel.
