This chapel, situated halfway between Lamego and Régua, is one of the rare examples of Pre-Romanic religious architecture of Byzantine influence in Portugal. Its origins probably date back to the 10th century. Seen from the outside, no one would guess how rich it is in the inside. The arches and the capitals decorated with plant-related motifs of Byzantine influence are worth highlighting. In the main chapel, there are two altarpieces with the images of Saint Paul and Our Lady Nossa Senhora do Ó.
