Beautifully decorated small church is worth a visit
Mar. 2020 • Friends
Do visit this beautiful small church in a large square in Óbidos. The walls and columns are covered with beautiful blue print tiles. The ceiling has decorative painting and the altar is gold gilded. One would not expect so much beauty in a small church in a quaint old town.

Good views from the hill

I usually make the church my midway stop when I hike from Praia Areia Branca to Lourinhã. Each time I stop here, I can’t help but enjoy the views.

A very old church (circa 14th century) on top of a hill and overlooking the village of Lourinhã and surrounding areas, one can meditate here amongst the pine trees.

Not as big as I had expected
Sep. 2018 • Solo
A very simple church, XIV century with later additions.
Very interesting details at the tops of the columns, a beautiful circular window (not stained glass, though), and a commanding position at the top of a hill, affording great views.

Santa Maria do Castelo is a small church, on top of the hill with beautiful views to the valley. It is very simple but it has some beautiful tiles.

Ancient Gothic temple
Jun. 2015 • Couples
This beautiful and true Gothic temple and still functional church was built in the mid 14th century on the site of where an ancient Moorish fort once stood. Simple in its appearance, it was declared a national monument in 1922. It is located on a hill, offering beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and the village of Lourinhã. Next to the temple is the Lourinha cemetery, containing some old mausoleums. Well worth a stroll up the hill to have a look if you are in the area. The temple is open to the public Wednesdays to Sundays from 15:00 - 17:00h.
