Despite being a medieval building, it was for many years considered the work of the Romans. In fact, in its extreme north there are still traces of this period, which indicates to us that the current medieval bridge has been erected over the preceding one.
There are many wayside crosses, as well as the crosses of the Via Sacra which begin at the Church of Goães and end near the Chapel of Sr. do Bonfim, which borders a few meters from the farm.
This chapel was formerly the place for the festivals of Ribeira.
Today, the feast of the Lord of Bonfim continues to be the largest religious festival in this parish, which is held on the first Sunday of September with mass and procession, music bands and lots of entertainment. The feast of the patron Saint Peter's, will be held on Sunday after the 29th day of June. In addition to these two feasts, it is the feast of the Lord on the day of Corpus Christi and the feast in honor of Our Lady of Conception that takes place on 8 December.
