The ancient mother church of Amêndoa, dedicated to Our Lady of the Conception, was possibly built in the 17th century to replace the primitive 13th century temple.
This church was demolished in 1987, and of its structure only the bell tower, of square plan, topped by prismatic coruches and emptied by bell towers, remains.
