XVII, and has black angels, something very rare. In this church are five paintings by Josefa de Óbidos alluding to Santa Catarina (c. 1661), a female artist who for the time was also not something common. Hand-painted Portuguese tiles are part of their walls, on the altar still present tiles of Moorish culture, because one day this church was a Mosque. Talk to the girl who sits at the entrance to the church and has a lesson about the history of this church that quickly becomes an interesting and wonderful.
Une belle église construite sur l'emplacement d'une ancienne mosquée, elle-même érigée sur les fondations d'un temple wisigothique. De beaux panneaux d'azulejos tapissent les murs. more »A beautiful church built on the site of an ancient mosque, itself erected on the foundations of a Visigothic temple. Beautiful panels of azulejos line the walls.
Beautiful place where you can find some of the very first " Manueline " Portuguese Gothic. - The place had some reconstructions, forward and backwards... but, to me ... the magic stills there.
Looks simple, but the inside is quite nice
