This evocative church ruin reminded us a bit of Melrose Abbey in Scotland. Worth the climb up the hill, really sweet and lovely. Both are pilgrimage sites, though at opposite ends of the goal.

We were driving along the coastal highway anyway, and this is just a short distance from the highway. It's a fascinating site, and a very romantic ruin (in the 19th-century literary sense), especially on a slightly foggy day like when we were there. There's not...More

Fascinating ruins of a church at the top of the town, surrounded by a beautifully maintained cemetery. Parking available at the side of the road. Free to visit.

Very worth the short walk. The old Cathedral is now part of a cemetery. The park located above has great views.

By walking to the Igrexa de santa marina Dozo you also walk through the neighborhood. Everyone has some grapes growing, everyone!. The views across the town and vineyards are beautiful and the cemetery is quite interesting.

I visited the ruins on a Sunday, which may have been a mistake. They are situated in the middle of a graveyard where the graves were being attended by many family members. I felt a little out of place as a tourist, although I was...More

These are gothic ruins of a ancient church from the 15th century. Today, it's a small and peculiar cemetery, definetly worth a visit.

The ruins look truly beautiful. I've visited it with my family on a rainy day and the scene is indescribable, with the old ruins and many tombs. I wouldn't bring kids there because they wouldn't understand the deep meaning within the mossy rocks and tombs....More
