  • This church, whose construction began in the sixteenth century, has a monumental façade to the taste of the baroque-Jesuit mannerist style that characterizes it. The Távoras coat of arms can be seen on the façade and one of its founders is buried inside. The altar of Nossa Senhora da Purificação (Our Lady of Purification) is a beautiful baroque piece in the style of D. João V.
