Antigo Convento da Ordem de Avis
Within, there is but one nave, with the chapel to the right tiled in yellows and blues. The church holds the fine marble tomb of Fernão Rodrigues de Sequeira, the last of the elected masters of Avis. In the main chapel, there is an excellent carved Baroque altarpiece. Take the stairs up to the choir stalls for a look at the pews dating to the late 17th century. They are considered one of the finest examples of Portuguese Rocaille. The sacristy dates to the Renaissance period and features a fine archway supported by skilfully carved stone brackets.
In the former sleeping chambers, down on the ground floor, the Municipal Museum of Avis tells the region's story through archaeological finds, including Roman exhibits, as well as later examples of craftsmanship and scale replicas of monuments.
