Heritage

An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación Church

1

This church was built in the Middle Ages. It was renovated in 1678-1681 owing to the damage suffered during the 1655 Lisbon earthquake.

The building has a nave and two aisles with a hall plan and a wainscot ceiling. 

Highlights inside include altarpieces, paintings and sculptures from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.

The altarpiece of high heritage value is presided over by the image of Our Lady of the Incarnation –to whom the church is dedicated– one of the town’s patron saints. The image of the town’s other patron saint, Saint Dominic of Silos, in a side chapel.
