  • The Cult of Our Lady of Lapa, of Origin Beirã, will have reached the village around 1758, presenting the temple completed in 1767. The church is characterized by the uniqueness of the architectural solutions it patents, namely by the centralized plant, by placing the tower behind the main chapel, and, above all, by a large and high dome, creating an innovative and simple solution. The ensemble, attributed to André Soares, is markedly baroque. The interior, with three characteristic elements of careful carving at the level of the retarpieces and grills, is a typical example of Rococo style.
