  • There's been a church on this site since 1133. It's right next to the Camino de Santiago ( Saint James Way) on the Portuguese Way as the majority of pilgrims passing it started in Portugal. Inside under the altarpiece is the Pedron an ancient stone which the boat carrying the body of Saint James was moored up to or so some say as the stone is actually a Roman alter stone. Church is in centre of the town in a nice quiet spot next to the River Sar.
  • On the altar is the pedrón de mooring of the ship that brought the remains of St. James the Apostle
