This is a lovely church, perfectly formed with a lavishly decorated interior. The front Portal is also wonderfully done. The altar is surrounded by a wealth of paintings and looks spectacular. Nice to pause for a moment, have a wander around and then a sit...More

Although you might think this town is just one big tourist trap ( and if you are here in the afternoon there are tons of tourists) it really is an ancient functioning village. This church is an example. Very old, very pretty and they still...More

The church doesn't look like much from the outside (it had scaffolding on when we visited), but the interiors are amazing. It has ornate blue and white tiles all around the walls and the ceiling has colourful tiles too. You won't regret it.

We’ve been visiting local churches and monasteries along our trip through Portugal. We’ve noticed each one has its own individual characteristics from the medieval times. So, with that being said be sure to bring your camera as there are many photo opportunities to capture.

A lovely 12th century church once built on the site of a mosque. The outside of the church is rather ordinary but inside is very pretty with its 17th century Portuguese blue & white tiles. It’s worth a visit to look inside.
