Visit the Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição - Paialvo

The Church of the Immaculate Conception, located in Carrazeda Parish of Paialvo, is a temple that is now more than four hundred years, although it has been amended. The front gable has a beak, flanked by a bell tower with a window of the choir and an oculus at the top. Two niches flanking the door of hewn stone, with ornate Renaissance origin. Each one holds its image: on one hand, Our Lady Mother of Men, on the other, the Holy Trinity. They are both stone and the same period. Inside, the nave, two side altars, and two side altar. They all have gilded altarpieces with ashlar and a nineteenth-century blue and yellow tiles of the 'standard', the eighteenth century, which also coats the entire chapel. The roof of the church is still the original belt, painted with ornamental motifs.
