Igreja do Convento de Santo António

Temple integrated in a convent, founded in 1524. In 1564, the church underwent renovation and expansion works and a century later it was rebuilt because it was in ruins. During the 18th century, it underwent numerous renovations, such as: application of gilded carvings in the chancel's altarpiece, placement of side altarpieces in the cross arch, covering the chancel with historian tiles from the workshop of Vital Rifarto, stalls in the choir high, building and covering the gilded carving and screens of the sacristy and construction of the cloister. It stands out for its twin chapels of Santo António and São Francisco, with a proto-Baroque façade.
