The Igreja de Santa Maria (Bragança), is the oldest church in Bragança, is located within the walls of the Citadel of Bragança. Its construction dates back to the 14th century, but it underwent modifications for two more centuries, eventually adopting a Baroque style. The façade features an ornate Baroque portal adorned with two Solomonic columns embellished with vine leaves and bunches.

Inside, the church boasts a Romanesque-style with three naves separated by polygonal columns supporting the arches. A scenographic painting portraying the Assumption of the Virgin graces the roof of the church’s body. Noteworthy features include the chancel and the Figueiredos chapel, the Santo Estêvão altarpiece, and the image of Santa Maria Madalena.
