The local church has an extraordinary, star-shaped Manueline porch decorated with twisted columns that look like lengths of knotted rope. Inside you'll find a simple interior, with columns topped with more stony rope, and some fine chapels, including one whose vault contains beautiful 17th-century glazed tiles showing Sts Francis and Michael killing the devil.
