  • I have visited several times with different friends from Brazil, and I am always amazed with the beauty and symbolism of this space.

  • The Gothic church of the late XIV-early XV century on the initiative of the religious organization Ordem de Santo Agostinho. One of the business card of the city. A beautiful church. Like many other Gothic churches, this one has a magnificent rose window over the main entrance, impressive size in comparison with the façade of the Church. Also interesting is the beautiful Gothic portal of the Church and its narrow high Windows. Inside is a quiet, cozy and roomy. Unlike Church functioned as a church, it is more like a Museum, there are even signs with explanations. Photography is prohibited. By the way, here is the tomb of discoverer Brazil (his name was Pedro Alvares Cabral)

  • In the historic center, the Church, part of the Augustinian monastery, is an emblematic monument of Santarem and one of the best examples of Gothic style in the country. The façade is a fine example of flamboyant Gothic with a beautiful portal and a large rose window. Interior much easier as typical of the Gothic monastery but with a nice apse with tall Windows and a couple of burials. Not to be missed if you are in Santarem.

  • If you're a historian, you will love this gothic church. Here lies the rest of Pedro Alvares Cabral, the traveler who journeyed overseas and ended on the land where Brazil now is located. A 30-minute visit is enough to check its surroundings.
  • Really liked the arched entrance and Gothic rosette on it, old. Inside decoration is very modest.

  • Portuguese Gothic architecture, very sober, and also shelter remains of Pedro Álvares Cabral.
