Description: a chapel dedicated to Santiago, which was built in a very pleasant location overlooking the river. It has facade coated by tiles. Near the North chapel, you find “Fonte do engaranho”. It is a stone fountain, of 1745, which says the people have miraculous powers.

State of conservation: good.

Legends and traditions: this chapel was built on the site of an earlier one, product of a promise of an inhabitant of this village. Legend has it that this man fell in love with a “foot of goat Lady” which attracted him to a cliff where she wanted to kill him, being saved from the sad fate by the invocation of São Tiago, who he pledged to dedicate a temple.
