It is one of the rare examples of Pre-Romanic religious architecture in Portugal. It is situated in the northwestern exit of Braga city through the old road leading to Ponte de Lima (EN201). Once taking this road, you will have to turn right in São Frutuoso direction. It is a small church attached to a much bigger Franciscan temple, built afterwards. It is particularly unique because of its interior arches and Latin cross plan. This church was erected in homage to São Frutuoso de Montelios, a saint who lived here in the 6th century. In the surroundings, you will find “São Frutuoso” restaurant, one of the best in the city.
