Viseu Cathedral is a Gothic edifice resembling a fortress church that dates back to the 13th and 14th centuries. In the front of the cathedral, you will contemplate the images of Saint Mark and Saint Luke, Saint John and Saint Matthew, Saint Theotonius and at the top, Our lady Nossa Senhora da Assunção. The main chapel presents a grandiose altarpiece, choir chairs and the patron saint’s image, Nossa Senhora do Altar-Mor, which clearly stands out from the set. The new altar, conceived by architect Luís Cunha, adds a contemporary touch to the cathedral. The sacristy has a panel-like wooden ceiling and it is decorated with tempera paintings, similar to the ones of the main chapel. The walls are covered by 17th century pattern tiles. Dom João Vicente (Bishop of Viseu – 1146/1463) chapel is one of the most interesting places, in terms of architecture, because of its rectilinear and intertwined ornaments.
