Parish Church of S. Martinho do Porto

The Parish Church of São Martinho do Porto is one of the worship places more emblematic in this village in the municipality of Alcobaça, especially because it contains within it an altar feast of metal, in 1950 that figured in the exhibition of Sacred Art of Leiria and the image of Jesus Christ crucified.

Restored in the XVIII century and with a beautiful painted ceiling, was the Count de Avelar (same as in 1904 built the village’s Baroque fountain) who has paid for, was in 1927, almost all of the great works the Church needed.

Behind the altar there’s still a large screen, painted in oil, with the image of the miracle of São Martinho, evoking the famous Roman legend of the knight who helped a homeless man giving him half of his thick cape in a cold and rainy day.
