Igreja Matriz de São Pedro

Built in the 16th century in the place of a hermitage where the sailors went to pray, it was deeply modified after the earthquake of 1755. The main chapel is decorated with a panel of the end of the 17th century, which belongs to the experimental baroque epoch. A stone image of Nossa Senhora da Esperança and yet another image of Santa Ana, credited to the sculptor Machade de Castro, ar part of this church's assets, that also includes paintings and images from several convents.
