The devout D. Francisco was enchanted by the place and decided to build this church using master builders from the Algarve and with the help of a personal friend from Vila Franca de Xira. This resulted in two artistic styles from distinct eras: Manueline and Renaissance. The Castelo Branco family crest is clearly visible on the top of the arch of one of the chapels.
