São Tiago Church

Image of São Tiago Church Exterior

Extinct parish headquarters and royal collegiate, already existed in 1302, but underwent deep architectural reforms in the 16th and 17th centuries, subsisting some earlier elements (primitive presbytery and crowning of Manueline bevelled battlements).
Its exterior features a façade of thick whitewashed masonry with a simple portal flanked by two towers equipped with pediment illuminated by the equestrian figure of Santiago attacking the Moors; laterally, there is the station of the via sacra, from 1722.
The interior is made up of a large nave with murals and canvases, tiled silhouettes on the side of the nave, attributed to Gabriel del Barco, and a gilded carving altarpiece in the 18th century chapel.
