It is one of the most important heritage sets of the region. This temple, which started as a small 15th century chapel, would later become parish church. It is a considerably valuable church, revealing Flemish influence, especially in the panels that depict the Virgin with Baby Jesus, surrounded by S. Bento and S. Bernardo and in the 16th century image of Nossa Senhora do Rosário. This church has portal with three Gothic archivolts and story-telling capitals, practically unequalled in the island. It changed many times throughout the centuries, in order to obtain its current appearance. (National Trust Building)
