The São Pedro de Abragão Church is classified as a National Monument since 1977, and integrates nowadays the very interesting touristic-cultural Vale do Sousa Romanesque Route, and is a rather interesting monument.

This Church still preserves its Romanesque transept, a significant testimony to the Romanesque architecture in the Sousa Valley.

Outside, the frieze composed of geometric motives revives the Church decoration in the Visigoth and Mozarab periods.

The existence of the Abragão Church is documented in 1105. However, the transept, traditionally attributed to the initiative of Lady Mafalda, daughter of king D. Sancho the 1st, dates from the second quarter of the 13th century.

The main façade and the nave are dated from the 17th century, when some reconstruction works took place.
