It is the oldest monument in Chaves, located in the surroundings of the City Hall and Misericórdia Church. It is built upon a former Roman temple and Bishop’s Idácio church. It was supposedly constructed around the 12th century over the ruins of ancient temples. In the interior, this church has three naves, separated by thick granite columns. Its current appearance is the result of deep restoring works carried out in 1968. Therefore, this church reveals the influence of different epochs and styles, from Romanic to Renaissance design.
