The second largest church in this small town is nicely displayed in a somewhat open square. There is a plaque in front of it. Not open at noontime when we visited.

Built in the mid-thirteenth or fourteenth century, it was a three-nave Gothic basilica that was distinguished by being the seat of the collegiate church of Saint Peter. Unfortunately, it collapsed with the earthquake of 1755. Of the original building, only the high altar and the bell tower remain. The reconstruction after the earthquake was simple. It has an altarpiece depicting São Pedro by the painter João da Costa. The current parish priest ordered that frames be placed on the altars and decorated with beautiful cloths during Lent and Easter time. Here are buried Father Rafael Silveira Malhao, brother of the well-known character who inspired the traditional song “o malao, malhao”, and the esteemed artist and feminist Josepha de Obidos.
If you are at the castle complex and if you are interested in churches, you will find a relatively small church with relatively sober walls, which I found very pleasant.
