Igreja de São João Baptista / Igreja Matriz de Alcochete

The origin of this church may be linked to an old arabic mosque, later transformed by Dom Manuel II in the gothic-manuelin style. A special note to the rose window, the manuelin tower, the hipanic-arabic tiles and the golden carvings in the chancel, of the 18th century.
