The main church of this small town is a good example of the Portuguese Christianization after having taken back those regions from the moors (end of the 11th beginning of the 12th century). These Christian churches are solid temples which sometimes could also be used as fortresses and were mainly built in Romanesque style. It doesn’t deserve a detour but it’s worth a visit if you are walking in this town’s center. Enjoy

It is a must do at Ponte de Lima. You can get in contact with local/traditional culture and you’ll see a very well kept place.

We attended the Sunday evening Mass here. It was such a contrast to the crowded flea market taking place just down the road! The church itself is beautiful and not quite so OTT as some of the others we’ve visited. Well worth a visit either as part of the congregation (doesn’t really matter whether you understand Portuguese or not, you’ll be familiar with the order of the service and the cadence of parts of the liturgy) or when there is no service, as a tourist.

Impressive architecture because it's heavy and humble yet impressive. I loved the ceilings and all of the wood work and the romanic architecture.

When visiting Ponte de Lima and walking through do spend a few minutes in this church. It is relatively simple church but that is what we like. We loved the altar wood carvings. Worth a visit when in Ponte de Lima, which has a number of other interesting sites to visit. Go to the tourist office where you can get a good map (in English) with all the sites worth seeing.

The Igreja Matriz de Ponte de Lima (Parish Church) was raised in the 15th century and remodeled in the 18th, preserving its beautiful Romanesque pointed arch.

Inside, beneath a wooden coffered ceiling, are shown numerous statues from different ages, and the Capela de Nossa Senhora da Conceição Chapel, a Manueline style temple where two Baroque reredos are exhibited. The right apse is preceded by a Renaissance arch from 1589.

Just another European church, nothing that great.
The stained glasses are beautiful, the best part of it.

I'm reviewing the town itself of Ponte de Lima. UNESCO city .. must see. Gorgeous river to walk along with famous bridge. Cobbled streets everywhere. We were there Sept 10 2017 which coincided with huge religious festival.. fabulous vibe of drumming bands & many dressed in national costume. Very interesting.

The church at the end of the Roman bridge is much newer than the bridge (and much of the town) and doesn't quite resonate the same way other churches I've visited in Portugal do. It only takes a moment to stop in, and perhaps it's more to others' tastes than mine...

I had seen some pictures of this lovely church online. I wanted to see it with my own eyes and I was not disappointed.

When I arrived in its vicinity, I immediately recognized the bell tower, standing proud and high.

Inside is quite simple as well as beautiful. It’s an open concept with some stained-glass windows and wooden benches, The altar is simple, but attractive. Near the entrance is a place to offer candles to the virgin.

On both sides of the church, at the very front are some amazing statues.

We found several procession statues that were ready to be paraded through the streets of Ponte de Lima. Even these are quite artistically built!

For a church built in the 15th century, it is a lovely one. However, there is a battle of styles within this church. For example, the Gothic portal crowned by a revivalist 20th century rose stained glass window (See pictures).

I certainly enjoyed the beauty of this lovely church.
