Capela de São Pedro de Balsemão - Lamego
A seventh-century Suevian-Byzantine church, which is unique in Portugal. Rebuilding work undertaken in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries completely altered its original appearance.
Having the structure of a three-naved church with a chancel, the interior houses two remarkable pieces: the tomb of the bishop D. Afonso Pires (fourteenth century) and Nossa Senhora do Ó (a fourteenth-century sculpture of the Virgin Mary in Ançã stone).
