This is the Church where King Afonso Henriques was baptized, the proof can be seen next to the baptismal font in a tombstone with the inscription "in this font was baptized the King D. Afonso Henriques by Archbishop S. Geraldo in the year of our Lord 1106."
Although it is a simplistic construction, with no major decorations, it’s considered a national interest monument since 1910. This is due the fact that its construction is intimately associated with the Portuguese nationality and to its foundation.
It houses a collection of tombstones with different symbols and several representations of religious warriors, a polychrome wood sculpture of S. Miguel (the patron saint of the Church) and a sculpture of the Virgin and Child, done in polychrome limestone.
