Standing 500 meters above sea level and canonically oriented, the chancel is all that remains from the primitive parish church. Besides a rectangular apse, this church would have originally been composed by a single nave, which was dismantled in the 19th century. With this dismantling, the apse was adapted to work as a Chapel by closing the chancel arch with a door, thus turning it into the main entrance.
Currently, in the churchyard, we find two ashlars that, by their featuring shapes, would give body to a cornice on little arches.
On the observer's left - which corresponded to the Gospel side of the triumphal arch - a capital represents the topic of serpents, whose single head appears in the capital's corner.
On the Epistle side, there are two Atlantean-shaped figures on the edges, resting on protruding leaves.
The existence of dihedral toruses in the crevices of the old apse shows us the journey of shapes and artists which characterised the Middle Ages and, in particular, the Romanesque style.
Still in the crevices, we highlight the richly ornamented capitals, either featuring a human and vegetal or an animal figure, showing the influence of the typical Romanesque style from Porto and Braga, respectively.
In terms of corbels, most of them are flat, thus indicating a late chronology. However, on the north side, some of them show geometric or human ornamentations, while on the opposite side, the human subject is also used.
In the space that once belonged to the nave, two slabs identify two graves: the larger one is engraved with a rather stereotyped sword (blade, straight guard and hilt), while on the other slab, which is smaller, a simple cross was carved.
Inside the Chapel, the back wall is occupied by the main altarpiece, made in gilded woodwork on white background and divided into three panels defined by twisted columns.
In each panel we have the image of Our Lady of Deliverance, at the centre, flanked by Saint Blaise, on the left, and Saint Martin, on the right.
Judging by the remaining traces, this Church of Fandinhães would have certainly been quite an elaborate construction, and is now a building worth visiting for its uniqueness and originality.
