Simple church in the middle of Sintra, it is well maintained but has little to see. It is almost always closed. Parking is very difficult.

This is a small but picturesque church virtually right in the town center. Worth a photo but not a detour.

This simple little church is right next to the Tourism Center in Sintra and is worth a few minutes of your time to pop in and see it and to take a gander at the view outside...

Church of Sao Martinho, founded in 12th century, originally Romanesque, was substituted by a Gotic temple during the reign of D. Dinis (13th century) and renovated between the 16th and the 18th century. It houses a Museum of Sacred Art, with pieces of great historic and cultural value.
