In 137 bcDecimusJuniusBrutus reached north Portugal and the River Lima. The crossing of this river by the Roman army was a favourite topic among Greek and Roman writers. The first reference was made by Titus Livius(Livy). Strabo also mentioned the episode: Lethes, quemalliLimaem, alli Belionem appelat.
Emperor Augustus ordered an eight-arch bridge to be built over the River Lima, near the mansio Limia, in other words, the modern Ponte de Lima.

Strange as it may seem, I never think to photograph the church of San Antonio da Torre Velha, on this side of the bridge, so it's a good idea for my next trip to Ponte de Lima.
The bridge we can cross the Rio Lima, to visit the church, although development to the threatening sky.
I just find that the church is too centered, a little more to the right seems to fit.
By cons, a camera with APS-C, no need to close the aperture to f/16 (diffraction begins to alter the image quality), a diaphragm of f/8, f/11 rigor , are amply sufficient to obtain a very good depth of field on this type of image (and usually it's diaphragm is there that the objectives have their best performance).
