Dedicated to Nossa Senhora da Conceição, this church was built in the 16th century. It has kept a characteristic sign of that period: an elegantly decorated Manueline portal. The three-nave interior has thick granite columns supporting the arches. Like everywhere in the Algarve region, the 1755 earthquake has caused severe damage, and part of the building fell down. However, the dome Holy Sacrament Chapel remained untouched. This chapel is covered by tiles and has a Christ’s Cross on top.
