CHURCH OF NOSSA SENHORA DA CONSOLAÇÃO (OUR LADY OF CONSOLATION)

The Church of Nossa Senhora da Consolação (Our Lady of Consolation), adjacent to the fortress with the same name, was founded in the 18th century. Engineered by military engineer Estêvão Luís, the temple is believed to have replaced a chapel also dedicated to Our Lady of Consolation.

The size of the temple, consisting of a long nave, was justified by the large number of pilgrims drawn to the Freiria (in Torres Vedras) and Gradil (in Mafra) pilgrimages.

Points of interest:

  • Blue and white tiles (azulejos) depicting the life of Our Lady
