Situated at town’s historical centre a few meters away from Republic Square, this church dates back to the 15th century. This imposing church is particularly impressive, worthy of an Episcopal temple. Its portico stands out as a magnificent sculpture example, revealing the transition phase from Romanic to Gothic style. In terms of interior decoration, gilt carved wood and neoclassical altarpieces are worth highlighting. In the cathedral surroundings, you will find several Medieval buildings, such as “Casa dos Velhos”, a beautiful example of Portuguese architecture during the Discoveries’ era. The development of Viana do Castelo is deeply related to this historical period.
