PONTE DE LIMA
MEDIEVAL BRIDGE
This superb medieval bridge spans River Lima. With its Gothic arches, it is a veritable landmark; the waters flow beneath it bringing coolness, peace and joy to the whole valley. According to legend, when the Roman army reached the River Lima they stopped and refused to cross it, fearing they would lose their memory. Today, it is an unforgettable place.
PARISH CHURCH
This is a medieval church with a plain façade and Gothic doorway which has four archivolts and is crowned by a rose window. It also has a sturdy bell tower.
The interior has three naves and a wooden ceiling spanned by perfect stone arches, giving the unusual impression than it is much wider than its height suggests. The chancel has a panelled vault.
PRAÇA DE CAMÕES
The most popular and finest place to visit in the town, with an elegantly decorated fountain in its centre that still displays the ancient rules concerning its use. The square is lined with attractive buildings, two of which have a Gothic and a Manueline façade, whilst the remainder date from the eighteenth century or later.
