Igreja de Santo António

This church was rebuilt in 1769 by orders of the command of the Infantry Regiment of Lagos, in order to become a chapel for them. The riches and profusion of the golden carvings on the high altar and the side walls, make this church one of the main examples of the Portuguese baroque. The wooden ceiling imitates a barrel-vault with a perspective painting. On the side walls one can admire 8 paintings that allude to Saint Anthony's miracles. The patron saint stands on the altar.
