Igreja de Santo Amaro / Núcleo Visigótico do Museu Regional
This valuable collection was put together by various archaeologists of whom Abel Viana arguably takes the highest profile. The museum includes pieces from the 5th to the 8th century and highlights the changes in architecture and taste that took place during the transition from Roman to Visigoth domination.
The basilica underwent various changes in the 16th and 17th centuries, hence the interesting gothic and Mannerist features it now displays.
Through to the 14th century, Saint Amaro day, 15th January, was popularly celebrated with cakes and sweet dishes in the shape of arms and legs in a call for the saint's protection from diseases in these limbs.
