This church is also known as Nossa Senhora da Assunção Church. It is located at the centre of Azambuja town, and it was built in the 16th century, undergoing some changes in the following centuries. The most outstanding elements are the two portals, the main one with a triangular pediment portico on top and the side one with Renaissance columns. The later is the most unusual one. The three-nave interior is filled by 17th century tiling, containing a painting that depicts the “Tree of Jesse”. The main chapel, modified in 1678, has a Baroque altarpiece in gilt carved wood, but it has kept the 15th century cover of a former temple. (National Trust Building)
