Igreja Matriz de Caminha

Monuments | Religious Architecture

Structurally following the Gothic model of a church-fortress with three staggered naves and a tower, this temple, started around 1488, seems to have ignored the so-called "Manueline", which is only visible in the top end garland and Mudejar ceiling. On the other hand, it presents an innovative Renaissance language in the axial, and south lateral portals and in the triumphal arch of the chapel of Senhor dos Navegantes, with influences from the Spanish Plateresque.
