Description

This Romanesque church, transformed in the Baroque period is covered with azulejos dating from 1730. The azulejos were designed by Bernardo, an artist known by the name of Policarpo de Oliveira Bernardes. Those on the walls and vault depict scenes from St Lawrence's life and his martyrdom. The large panel of azulejos on the church's flat chevet depicts St Lawrence beneath a Baroque scallop.
