Igreja de São Vicente de Sousa
Declared a national monument the September 29, 1977, this temple represents a good example of Romanesque style, with nave and rectangular headboard. Inside, features Baroque carved in the high altar and statuary in the same style. The antiquity of this building is claimed by two inscriptions on the walls, both of the Romanesque period. The first, from the year 1214, commemorates the dedication of the Church and finds himself on the outside of the wall of the nave, while the second, of 1162-date of construction of the original headboard-, fancies himself a funeral or commemorative inscription of building an arcosolium (tomb with a wall thickness). Therefore, it is the oldest registered copy of similar funerary structure.
