by johnsakura

Located on the hill side of the mountain range of Viana, from its name São Pedro (Saint Peter) not much is known about its foundation and creation from which seems to be connected with late gothic Portuguese manuelino style.
Today only some ruins exist aside with a field of olive trees and crop fields where some cows happily eat in the pasture.
The first building body is construted by 1500?s style from the manuelino epoch and the mudéjar art. The recently fallen ?nortex? is from the 1600?s. There are still some visible painted frescos on the building
