This church is pretty but nothing that compares to many of the other ones that we visited. You should stop and look in however for just a couple minutes.

This inside of this church is just as pretty as the outside. Be sure to take a peek into the cloister.

Portugal is full of churches, yet every one is very nice. This one too, with an old like exterior. You can enter for 5 minutes and relax.

Whilst visiting the Historic Centre we visited this church and was surprised by the stone simplicity. The side niches held beautifully ornate religious images and the image behind the altar was quite striking
