Santa Maria do Val Church
The parish church is a good example of the local baroque. The plan of the church draws a Latin cross, with the sacristy attached to the presbytery. The nave, with three sections, is articulated by means of pilasters, also serving as a support for the toral arch of access to the head of the temple. The nave is covered with a barrel vault and a groin in the transept of the transept. The façade is strengthened with pseudo-doric pilasters at the ends, which connect with the curved ramps of the cornice, serving as a seat for the pinnacles. The cover is enhanced by earrings, a superimposed niche containing the stone image of the Immaculate Conception and a moulded window. The belfry consists of two decreasing bodies with holes for the bells.
Inside, it conserves a very interesting high altarpiece, organized in two decreasing bodies and compartmentalized in three streets. The piece of the tabernacle, of torreiform structure, achieves certain monumentality, appearing with the reliefs of the Annunciation, Flight to Egypt and Adoration of the Shepherds.
