Church of Taboada dos Freires
The Taboada dos Freires church was built in the 12th century but underwent significant renovation in 1927. Of the original church, only the main door, a single window at the end of the apse and some corbels in the nave remain.
This rectangular church has granite walls and a ridged tile roof. Inside, on one side, is a rounded triumphal arch. The wall at the end of the apse has a window with a half rounded archivolt and elbow columns with an inscribed cross holding up the tympanum.
The most important element is the tympanum, on which there is a depiction of the biblical scene of Sampson strangling a lion.
