Igreja Matriz de Santiago do Cacém/ Tesouro da Colegiada de Santiago

In this church, a special note to the lateral portico, to the dome that covers the high choir and to a stone 14th century gothic carving that represents Santiago fighting the moors. As the centuries passed, the building went through changes, thus showing vestiges of several epochs. The central and lateral naves, the Sun Door with a broken archivolt, the carvings by the choir and the tomb of Álvaro Mendes Brito are gothic examples. The manuelin style can also be seen on the nave. It has also baroque features. And then there are still the altars and the pulpit in polichroime carvings, of the time of the Marquis of Pombal.
