Long Description:
[PT]
"A actual freguesia de São Tiago de Mondrões conheceu grande prestígio, tendo chegado a ser vila, e possuindo longas ligações à ordem hieronimita, inclusivamente como vigariado pertencente ao padroado do Mosteiro dos Jerónimos de Belém. A igreja paroquial de Mondrões terá sido edificada nas primeiras décadas do século XVI, possivelmente em data próxima de 1519, quando o vizinho concelho de Penaguião recebeu foral manuelino, beneficiando também as vilas limítrofes.O templo, dedicado a São Tiago, possui planimetria e espacialidade manuelinas, com nave única cujo comprimento duplica a largura, portais Sul e Norte rasgados em eixo, e capela-mor rectangular, sendo todas as coberturas feitas através de elegantes abóbadas estreladas. No entanto, a estrutura original foi grandemente desvirtuada por obras de reconstrução posteriores, datadas já de 1744, época na qual toda a região vivia grande prosperidade económica."

"The present parish of St. James of Mondrões enjoyed a great reputation, having come to be village and having long connections to the hieronimita order, even as vigariado belonging to the patronage of the Jeronimos Monastery of Bethlehem The parish church of Mondrões have been built in the early decades of the sixteenth century, possibly at an early date of 1519. The temple, dedicated to St. James, has Manueline planimetry and spatiality, a single nave with a length twice the width, north and south portals torn on axis, and rectangular chancel, with all the toppings made ??through elegant starry vaults. However, the original structure was slightly altered by subsequent reconstruction work, dated as of 1744, at which time the entire region was experiencing great economic prosperity."
