Church of Salvador do Mundo

The church and Convent of Salvador settled here in the early seventeenth century in what was the palace of Counts of Sortelha.

The convent was largely demolished in 1942, making way to the new street of Olivença and the building of CTT. Only the tower of the Old Wall as well as the adjoining cloister remained  later reformed to accommodate the Direcção Regional dos Monumentos do Sul. The church with ashlars of polychrome tile inside was inaugurated in 1610. Particularly curious is the frontal altar of Indo-Portuguese type from around 1650. The gilded altars are also remarkable.
