Founded in 1524, this church presents a Roman arch porch and a beautiful Renaissance portico. Later, the white marble Chapel of the 11 Thousand Virgins was attached to it, standing out as a good example of Renaissance architecture in the country. In this chapel, you have the chance of looking at several objects brought by D. Pedro from his trips. The name of the chapel is due to a legend, according to which 11 thousand women were slaughtered by the Huns, because they refused to lose their virginity. (National Trust Building)
