  • After several visits, we give up. The opening on the information panel are never respected. The door is always closed.

  • In these terms mean d. Manuel I, in a letter sent from Vale do Vouga Arrifana to 5 December 1502, after passing by Vila do Conde on his return from a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, where people prayed to construction of a new church that c onseguisse accommodate everyone. Canonically oriented (towards Source-West), outwardly, this displays a Manueline portal richly elaborated, on the side of a tower. The interior surprises for the architecture, altars, imaginary, decorations and tools liturgies. In the transept of the side of the Epistle, is open a small Museum of sacred art, which I recommend to those who enjoy the theme, and that completes the visit to this beautiful monument, which I suggest to visit.

  • One of the ex-libris of the city, deserves a visit Several architectural styles are combined in the interior and exterior. I loved the gargoyles;)

  • Could be better preserved, but also many national monuments, to a church with about 500 years of doing very well. The stained glass Windows are beautiful, the interior is magnificent, the altar is majestic and have on your front, above the entrance, a massive pipe organ. Must-see.

  • The Church of St. John the Baptist is an important monument of the city of Vila do Conde, and one of the most significant in Manueline style in the country. Features elements of Gothic and Renaissance architecture.
