Falperra Church

Falperra Church or the Church of Santa Maria Madalena is a rococo church located in Falperra Hill, Braga, Portugal.

The church was built in the early 18th century, by order of the Archbishop D. Rodrigo de Moura Teles. It was projected by André Soares.

The granite retable-like frontage is exuberantly decorated. Particularly striking is the throne with Saint Mary Magdalene, flanked by two small towers bearing the busts of Saint Martha and Saint Lazarus.
