Eye catchy church located next to morning market. A simply medieval structure church, no frills. If you are near Vila do Condo, and you are into religion, art, architectural, come by to take a look. Plenty of pay parking around the church.

Stunning Manueline style church dating back to roughly 1500AD. Its stone block exterior, tall bell tower and highly stylized portico give it a commanding presence set within a tranquil square. Inside, towering arcs that run the length of the chapel give the appearance and feel...More
