There are plenty of pretty little churches in Obidos. This one has one of the most impressive altars in the town. Very much worth a visit. Didn't see anyone else go inside when we were there.

Located in a nice square is well worth a short visit. Please respect the church and for men remove your hat on entering. Very ornate altar.
