Igreja do Antigo Convento de Nossa Senhora da Ajuda (or Igreja de São Paulo)

Tavira

This is a 17th century building in plain style. Its floor plan is in the shape of a Latin cross and it has three windows in the façade, the middle one crowned by a niche containing the statue of St Paul the Hermit.

Inside, visitors have the opportunity to admire a series of Baroque altarpieces. Also worthy of mention are the side altars, which are dark in colour because they have not been gilded.

There is also an interesting collection of statues, mostly from the 17th and 18th centuries, and a number of paintings, in particular four examples in the 16th century style.
