Igreja Paroquial de Lamas de Mouro

Religious Heritage

You’ll find the Igreja Paroquial de Lamas de Mouro (Igreja de São João Baptista) in the centre of Lamas de Mouro parish. This majestic Romanesque church was built in the Middle Ages and underwent many reformations during the Modern and Contemporary Ages. Climb the two borderer steps, go through the portal – where it stands out a sculptural set representing two human figures, Adam and Eve, according to the locals – and visit its inside, which used to be the baptistery for the neighboring villages. Before ending your visit, enjoy the amazing surrounding landscape, which welcomes you to the Peneda-Gerês National Park. There's a small heaven calling for you!
