No access to interior but intriguing facade

We wandered past this old church and were struck by the strange and different exterior. Rather grotesque men statues on the top. Interesting.

Only saw it from the outside. The facade is okay but nothing out of the ordinary. Just another church.

If you walk up the stairs to the roof, you will have a great view of what seems like most of Alentejo. You can see very far at least...
