The Igreja Matriz de Portimão (Main Church of Portimão) dates from the 15th century. It is located in the highest area of the city inside the old city walls. The late Gothic gateway is inspired by the most imposing monument of the age, the Batalha Monastery, and you can identify fine moulded sculptures of musicians and women. Different architectural epochs come together such as baroque, rococo and Manueline styles, the result of several phases of reconstruction and artistic enrichment of the Igreja Matriz de Portimão (Main Church of Portimão).
