Church of São Tiago

Extinct parish and royal collegiate, already existent in 1302. Underwent deep architectural reform in the 16th and 17th centuries, that left some earlier elements (the original presbytery, and the Manueline chamfered battlements on the top).

On the outside a whitewashed facade of thick masonry with a simple portal flanked by two twin towers with a pediment illuminated by the equestrian figure of Santiago fighting the Moors; outside there is an oratory from 1722.

The interior comprises a wide nave with murals and canvases, a series of historicized tiles on the inner side walls of the nave, attributed to Gabriel del Barco, and a gilded altarpiece in the main chapel (18th century).
