City of Tavira
São Paulo or Nossa Senhora da Ajuda
Former church of the Convent of the Hermits of São Paulo, which dates back to 1606, it is today a mark of the "Chã" architecture in the city. During the 18th century it underwent some alterations to the interior and exterior.
Nossa Senhora da Consolação
Its origin dates back to 1648, the consecration date of the Confraternity of Our Lady of Consolation of Prisoners. It was located outside the walls, near the Alfeição door and the old jail. It was composed of different annexes, destroyed during the 20th century. Inside, the 17th century altarpiece with details from the second half of the 18th century stand out.
Nossa Senhora da Piedade
This small religious temple was built in 1758, next to the primitive castle walls. It was probably the people who ordered the construction of this simple chapel due to their strong devotion to an image of Nossa Senhora da Piedade, located nearby. Thus, efforts were made to build this chapel, which also presents some interesting architectural and artistic details in the portal and altarpiece respectively.
Santo António dos Capuchos
Former church of the Convent of the Capuchin Franciscan Friars, dating back to 1612. Today it is an example of the austerity of the 16th century "Chã" architecture. During the second half of the 18th century it underwent some changes to the façade. It stands out for the sculptural representation in its interior of the Trânsito de Santo António.
