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.
Schedule: from tuesday to friday 9h30 to 12h30 and 14h00 to 18h00. Saturdays from 14h00 to 18h00.
