Long Description:
The church is a Romanesque building of the twelfth century, originally called the Church of St. Mary's Gate, because it is adjacent to the Gate of the castle of Melgaço.

Some still remains of the original layout that was the subject of many renovations over the years.

The main gate is formed by two sets of columns, addorsed the cutouts, with capitals decorated with plant motifs.
