The Santa Maria Church in Marco de Canavezes (near Porto) is part of an overall complex that, together with a planned Parish Centre, forms a small urban square. This is a quote by architect Siza, when visiting the site: “The visit to the place already chosen had disturbed myself deeply: it was a very difficult place, with great height differences, lofty to a highway with a lot of traffic. As if it was not enough, that area was marked by buildings of terrible quality. The construction of this parochial center is also the construction of a place, in substitution of a scarp very accentuated.”

Joaquim Teixeira says:

How to get there? Take the national railway line from Porto to Marco de Canaveses. From the station you should be able to get a bus to town centre, since it's a little far. Taxis are not too expensive either and are usually available. You can already see the building on top of a hill from the train staton.
