Sightseeing in Valença.
Nov 2019
In the old town of Valença do Minho you have the “Igreja da Misericordia” who is a “Barok Temple” who is dating from the second halve of the 16th century, and who got his renovation into the 19th century. You can see on the interior that theu are still busy to do some renovation on it, but anyhow worht the visit while you are in town.

Crazy value!
Sep 2019
Recommended by our wonderful hotel (Casa Manuel Espregueira e Oliveira), it looks like just another 18 Century refaced building which you can see pretty much anywhere in Portugal. But go inside, and it is something special: I am not religious but my word, the sheer beauty and peace of the building held my attention for way longer than I would ever have imagined. As others have said, it’s just €1 as an entry fee: at €3 it would still have been astonishing value. They should reprice, and release even more money to protect this amazing space.

Like so many churches in Portugal, the exterior is often not particularly remarkable, but once inside....oh my God!... stunningly beautiful!
Unmissable. Spend an hour at least inside.

Wow...

Just wow. €1 to enter the church is under-valuing the beauty that awaits. Simply stunning tiles, depicting bible scenes from the old and New Testament. Worth taking a look.

What a lovely church.
Oct 2018 • Couples
This is a church that you should definitely visit if you are in the town. It is very special with blue tile decoration as well as ornate gold alter and other gold decoration. The ceiling painting is really spectacular too. I felt spiritually moved in this sacred place.
