It is said that Queen D. Mafalda (1152), wife of Dom Afonso Henriques, founded this temple, situated in Abade de Neiva village, west from the city of Barcelos. This church clearly shows how Medieval Portuguese rural architecture was influenced by Romanic construction methods. The portico with columns and decorated capitals is an example of that influence. Next to the front of the church, you will see a square structured tower, built by Dom Dinis in the 13th century.
