  • I saw it from the outside only but I think it is a right piece of architecture at a right size in the right place. Not too large, snow white, not too many additions to the main body but one cannot say it is a simple cuboid. Now that I know how it looks inside I consider it a huge mistake to skip it.
  • Interesting history although a shame we can't see more of it.
  • A truly wonderful history of this church.
  • It is the most well preserved mosque dating from the second half of the NINETEENTH century in Portugal. It was transformed into a church in 1238 and suffered works in the 16TH century. Very interesting.

  • Very beautiful and well preserved. The timetables of the monuments in Mértola should be revised in order to be more comprehensive. For example, in the summer, it makes no sense for the castle to close at 18h... Once the heat tightens is more at the end of the afternoon you feel like visiting. The same applies to museums, etc.
