Religious Architecture

This modest neo-Gothic church is built in the revivalist style found in Portugal at the turn of the 19th-20th century in more elaborate examples such as the Church of Reguengos de Monsaraz. The façade features a central tower capped by a tiled pyramidal spire, framed by four pilasters with classical capitals and pinnacles. In the centre a window is directly above the ogival entrance.
