Nobody knows for sure the origin of this small granite temple dedicated to Santa Marta (Saint Martha), implanted in the middle of cultivated fields. Some researchers believe that it is what remains of an old settlement, which moved to the current village of Coimbró.
A testimony of the harmonious relationship between man and nature.
It is here, that the believers come to ask for abundance in the crops and protection for their animals, as was done in antiquity, where it was common to choose these kinds of places to raise the altars of the gods.
The chapel of Santa Marta is a testimony of the harmonious relationship, between man and nature, in the Barroso region.
The chapel is located 26.7 km (35 minutes by car) from the county seat via R311 (towards Salto) and M520 (towards Carvalhelhos).
