This three-nave building has marble doors and a valuable sacred art collection, including china, pottery, gold and silver ware and sculpture. In the 15th century, Jácome de Burges, the first person who the island was donated to, ordered its construction. Nevertheless, it changed in the 19th century, still preserving two side portals, church’s vaults and Manueline style chapels. In the interior, you should draw your attention to a wooden altarpiece (placed in eight Renaissance style panels), one of the lateral chapels and the altarpiece of another chapel with an outstanding work in gilt carved wood and a forged iron portico.
