Sé de Portalegre

Established in the 16th century this renaissance style construction underwent several modifications during the 18th century, especially on the outside. On the inside, there are 17th century tile panels and an outstanding collection of Mannerist paintings, unique of this kind in Portugal. More that ninety paintings make up the retables on the main altar and lateral chapels. Inside the Cathedral it is also possible to see the sacristy and the cloister which was completed in the 18th century.
