Av. Gago Coutinho, Marco de Canaveses
Designed by prestigious architect Álvaro Siza Vieira (b. 1933), who won the Pritzker Prize in 1992, the church of Saint Mary, dedicated in 1996, is considered a paradigm of 20th-century religious architecture.
With a simple look and subject to principles of spatial purity and geometric abstraction, its contemporary lines merge with the landscape, thus creating a unique temple to visit or pray.
