Igreja de São João Evangelista das Carmelitas

The construction began in 1610 as the Paço de D. Brites Lara (Palace), and in 1657 the Ordem das Carmelitas feminine convent, space where the church is integrated, was built. By the end of the XVII century the pulpits were built and the dressing in golden woodcarving began. In the next century the referred woodcarving was combined with azulejos (glazed tiles) from the Vital Rifarto factory. Already at the XX century, the building suffered repair works, being classified as National Monument.
