The Parish Church of Beça, dedicated to St. Bartholomew, is a building built in granite, in Romanesque style, whose origins date back possibly from the 13th / 14th century, and which has been the subject of restructuring works around the 16th century.

The building consists of a single nave and main chapel, behind which is the sacristy. The main façade, with a perfect back archway, is topped with a gable with cornice, in the length of which is a belfry with two bells, topped with a Greek cross.

The church has five altars. It has as central figure Saint Bartholomew, sculpture in painted stone, flanked by two important local devotions: São Brás and São Sebastião. The remaining altars, lateral, are in the nave of the church, on the side of the gospel are the altar of St. Peter and the altar of St. Barbara and, on the side of the epistle, that of St. Paul and that of Our Lady of the Rosary.

The floor is paved with covers of 49 graves.
