If you enjoy arquitecture and art, the Church of Santo Quintino, classified as a National Monument, is a place that certainly deserves a closer look. Upon entering you will see why it has been called the”Tile Museum” by many. It was built by King Manuel in 1520, on an ancient chapel dedicated to the worship of Santa Maria de Montagraço, and its patron, Santo Quintino. During the next two centuries, the church underwent additions and improvements.
The five sixteenth century wood paintings, the unique patterns of tiles (Hispano-Moorish, carpet panels, some with diamond pattern) as well as some images are just a few artefacts of particular artistic quality.
