Very historic and interesting church, in many ways. This town once had a sinagogue which still exists with many original details that remained even after it was converted into a Catholic oratory.

Travelling in Northern Portugal, on your way to the prehistoric rock-art open-air paleolithic sites of the Côa River Valley and to its fantastic "Museu do Côa", you'll certainly pass by "Vila Nova de Foz Côa". This is one of the oldest Portuguese towns, dating as...More
