The church of Saint Mary of the Assumption was built in the first half of the 16th century and conforms with the Portuguese Mannerist style. It was later enriched with Portuguese style carved woodworking from the late 16th or the early 17th century. The noble decoration of the southern portal, facing the square, stands out. In its interior, one can see the double pattern carpet style tile panels and, in the side altars, a Tree of Jesse painted on wood by Simão Rodrigues in 1595, and an oil painting on canvas depicting the Calvary, from the early 17th century, attributed to André Reinoso or his school.
