  • It was probably built in the 13th century, although it might be founded on an older construction.
    In 1737 it was remodelled; the changes were designed by Nicolau Nasoni, according to some authors.
    The main façade is open by a full arch flanked by pilasters and topped by a decorated fronton.
    The central window has a stone balustrade and the fronton - that exceeds the entablature - reveals the coat of arms of Bishop D. Rafael de Mendonça.
    The lateral façades present equally framed windows with magnificent frontons.
