Igreja Matriz de Martim Longo (Martim Longo Main Church)


Originally a mosque, the Main Church of Martim Longo was converted into a Catholic church, which can be seen from the cylindrical buttresses and the bell tower, the result of the remodelling of the old minaret.

It has a simple façade a simple façade with a doorway with a pointed arch, and three naves on the inside separated by ogival arches supported on truncated-pyramidal capitals displaying a Byzantine influence.

Inside, there are three statues of particular interest: one of Nossa Senhora da Conceição (Our Lady of the Conception) from the 16th century, one of São Luís Bispo from the 17th century and one of Santo António (St Anthony) in the Baroque style.
