Igreja de Santa Maria information
Igreja de Santa Maria was built during the 15th and 16th centuries and retains a 16th-century entrance; the rest of the remaining structure dates largely from the mid-19th century when it was restored after fire. Don’t overlook the strange orange and purple battling angels mural behind the altar.
