Igreja do Corpo Santo de Massarelos
The present temple was built in 1776, starting to serve as the Parish church of Massarelos when Santa Maria da Boa Viagem church ruined. The current church is divided in three parts by pilasters: on the central part there is a gate with a broken pediment with one niche from where it is possible to see the Saint Patron image, S. Pedro Gonçalves Telmo, and two columns topped by Corinthian capitals. Upper this, there are two lateral windows and a circular window. On the sides the bell ringer towers are topped with adornments in each face and finished by an iron cross. Between the campaniles and the entablature there is one watch. The façade is covered up with glazed tiles.
